How I made “After rain there is sunshine”

In 2018 I started a project called “The Fisherman”. First image was “Fishing birds“. Now I have the second image finished! Part 2 is called “After rain there is sunshine“. I could have called it “A New chapter”, and the meaning of the image is the same, but I think “After rain there is sunshine” is a better title for what I want to express. *deep breath* This is how I made it!

Tip: turn on the subtitles 😉

Photographer about this photo

Sometimes life can have a setback. You have to work hard to get the sunshine back in your life. I have experienced it recently and I had to (and still do) work hard on my self and my life. This image is second in a serie called “The Fisherman”. This episode is ment for expressing how you can work on your future and bring that sunshine back in your life.

The sunshine behind the paper I have photographed in Kefalonia (Greece). The foreground I had to wait (a long time) for a stormy day. It was photographed in Hoek van Holland (the Netherlands). My son helped me photographing me in my rain suit. The rest is made in Photoshop.

I love it! It’s a simple message, and a positive one. Your craftsmanship shows in the small details like the string waving in the wind behind the subject, and the horizons matching so well. The fish hook is a nice detail, and the drop shadow is well done too. The matched colours of the sky and rain suit help to tie the theme together.

Angelo … A magnificent idea and excellent execution! The image really brightens my day and sends a surrealistic message!
