[Darkfield] Strawberry splash

Tried to do a different perspective on the usual splash shot. This is what I came up with. If interested in how it all went horribly wrong, read on....

 

I wanted fast recharge times as I was using high-speed setting for the strawberry splash. Hence, the low power settings on the speedlights and ISO 800. Because the image is fundamentally quite dark (it's meant to be like that) and coupled with ISO 800, it's quite noisy.

 

I reduced noise in Neat Image using quite aggressive settings. The bottom bit is a bit blurred but I am actually OK with that, as it's the splash which is the interesting bit in the photo.

 

I really HAVE to get a proper light or sound trigger!!!

Behind subject: SB28@1/16 power bouncing light off wall

Right of subject: SB24 (with blue filter) @1/16 power bouncing light off the ceiling

 

There was a black card between the subject and the SB28

 

Trigger: Cactus v2s
