All I need is 1 shot: Rain shots with a WRX STi & Daytona 675r

There is that cliche saying, “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”. In this context, sometimes only one shot is what you need to make your client happy.

This Suburu WRX STi belonged to Tyvon who was about to finish his duty here in Hawaii and often times I get contacted to take a few shots of their motorcycle, or in this case, car before it is put on a container to be shipped of to their next duty station.

A small break in the storm (left) then it poured (right).

What is funny and accurate about this image is that this is exactly how Hawaii is like. It might be sunny one moment and the next, a storm just comes on by. After the downpour, Tyvon got out to wipe down his STi again but after the first down pour, I told him it’s ok and took the shot. He liked it and it was all good!

It poured 5 minutes of the wipe down.

Coincidentally this wasn’t the first time it rained when I did a photoshoot with Tyvon. He wanted a shoot with him riding his Triumph Daytona 675r. All he needed was a shot of him putting down a knee and that was the money shot!

Knee down in the rain for bragging rights!

I could have called it a wash out for both shoots but decided to go on. Now Tyvon has two great images of this place and I was happy to provide such photos!
