day 349 - self portrait

I told me fiance we should delay the wedding.... she wasn't best pleased :P

 

This was immense fun.

 

I've been wanting to do this for a while but with water balloons. We couldn't find any in the supermarket so settled for a big jug of water. My girlfriend did the throwing (and had far too much fun doing so I might add), I triggered the camera using a wireless remote. The timing was tricky. We did several test shots of throwing a small glass of water but only 2 of the big jug. This was the last shot of the day; then I got cold :P

 

This idea circles back to my philosophy that if you're not enjoying photography, you're taking the wrong photos.
