Rainbow Shines Through
Did He Use a Filter?
As a subscriber to BAR for almost 20 years, I look forward to each issue. I have especially enjoyed the magnificent photography and was overwhelmed by the cover of the 20th anniversary issue. How did the photographer create the image? What kind of camera? Which film, exposure, time of day, month of year, how soon after the rain?
A few days after finishing BAR, I was leafing through the Cokin filter catalogue. What a disappointment to find a filter with what appears to be a rainbow at exactly the same angle!
Could this be the trick? Can any amateur “create” this image? One doesn’t need to be at the right place, at the right time. Shouldn’t the caption credit Mr. Nalbandian with “creating” this image rather than capturing it?
