Lemongrass Ginger Infusion

The perfect brew if you're feeling a little under the weather or just need a soothing pick-me-up! We have a lemongrass bush in our kitchen garden, so it's always at hand.


I managed to hit three themes with this one: Fusion, Motion, and Curved!


Lighting: An SB-900 in a 28" softbox camera left, and an SB-800 pointed at the background wall. I also used some grey paper and a black-covered reflector to the right and left to create the dark areas in the water and glass. I turned off all the lights in the room to remove extra reflections, and kept the flash power as low as possible to freeze the motion of the (boiling hot!) water.
