Wikipedia says "Rainmaking is an ethnographic term for rituals intended to invoke rain. Among the most well known examples of rainmaking rituals are North American rain dances, historically performed by many Native American tribes."
I may add that indeed the rain dances and invocations are even present in our Slavic Ukrainian traditions - they are present in our folklore and were usually performed by men.
This is another shot with Taras, somebody pretty close to being perfect. While we were doing some portfolio shots it suddenly started raining and we had to somewhat improvise. Half of the photos were ruined because of the rain, I had my had and camera covered with my coat, nevertheless I continued shooting
Although there is pretty much no extreme manipulation I loved the mystic feel this shot had.
The only thing I regret is that we did not do the planned costume shot because of the rain - I had a custom made Plague doctor mask - so we will have to have another shoot with Taras before the cold Ukrainian autumn makes it impossible ask me anything my official web site
