    Faking rain



    193. BARON RETENIZ VON STILLFRIED. Rain Shower in the Studio, c. 1875.

    How was this rain effect achieved? Is it something in-camera or just scrached in later?

    Certainly it is not rain. Emulsions would be too slow, methinks, to capture that. I would opt for parallel scratches on the plate.

    Hollywood uses milk (yes, milk) in the movies to make rain visible!

    How about doing a pre-exposure of the film. A black cloth with holes with a light source then the photographer moves the camera or the cloth with the shutter open. Then the second exposure of the women with the umbrella?

    It doesn't look like real rain.

    Of course it doesn't, but I am wondering how it was faked. I like the picture too.

    It really looks like scratches on the negative.

    I vote "scratches."

    I bet he dragged a brush across the negative while the emulsion was still wet.

    I'm almost certain this is a wet plate and after fixing, the collodion emulsion is very soft. It seems like it would be simple to add fine scratches while the emulsion is very soft--maybe with a fine knife point, so the emulsion doesn't tear.
