Soft and Flattering Lighting

As mentioned earlier, the soft, natural lighting that accompanies rain is a cinematographer's dream. Cloudy skies act as a giant diffuser, bathing the entire scene in a gentle, even glow. This eliminates harsh shadows, creating a flattering and intimate ambiance that beautifully captures the essence of the day. Every detail becomes part of a soft, romantic tapestry.
