I know, it has a rebel flag on it. So what. If that’s a problem go read your history. That’s what the driver of this truck would most likely tell you and he’d be correct.
I can only make assumptions about this truck but I bet it’s a safe bet to say that he works on his own vehicles, doesn’t care what you think, and he works for a living. Most of all, he loves his country. You may not approve of his truck or his rebel flag, but he’s not going to take anything from you. He has counterparts that do.
I’m happy with this photo, but it’s not what I want. The idea in my head is a truck coming down the road with the lights hitting the rain. This photo does get me one step closer to that idea though.
I now know I need better positioning closer to the road. I need to switch to the 40mm or 50mm. Bumping up the ISO from 3200 to 6400 will probably work, especially with the 50mm that can open up one more stop than the 40mm.
Of course, safety is a concern so I’ll be scouting out a better spot.
This was a fun shoot with the challenges presented. An umbrella is new mandatory photo gear. The rain changes everything and all that’s required for the effect is a bad day and an umbrella to keep the camera from getting rain on the lens.
