Melancholy In The Rain

1:45 AM

Who loves playing in the rain?

Mayoi here obviously does! I went out one sad weekend to a rainy day photoshoot and yeah, quite sad because it's been raining so hard lately (update: not anymore 'coz the sun is up and shining as mighty as ever!) 

So enjoy the pictures I did for Mayoi and one surprise guest appearance. LOL!

Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

This was the rock that I used to balance Mayoi in some angle.

 A wild psyduck appeared!

You're a water creature, Psyduck! You don't need an umbrella to shelter yourself from the rain haha!

For this set, I used a different treatment that applies to the sad, feeling when it rains. The muted colors turned out great for me! Do you like it? Let me know! Email me at ilovepinkcheeks at gmail dot com :D


If you're wondering how I balanced Mayoi without her stand, I used a cheap alternative: a cotton bud! It works well on her, I just placed the tip underneath her skirt and balanced her on the surface, while taking photos with angles where the cotton bud can't be seen. Pretty neat, huh?

  1. Wow you did jump in the dirt for this , that's a photographer's spirit!

    I really like what you did there, so the umbrella comes to practical use.
    With the dof and fitting background let it appear very lifelike.

    A cotton bud under her skirt, how ecchi XD

  2. That trick with the q-tip... very nice. I've struggled to balance figmas without the stand in the past, never occurred to me to prop them up that way >.<

    Nice to see Hachikuji in the rain! Put that umbrella to use lol
