The Moon and Mars.

    Newer Older

    No light sources outside, so this was a sod to do.

    First I had to waaay overexpose and stop down just to get a decent (*)shutter speed. Then I had to guess where to hold the chocolate.

    Finally, I had to pop my external flash at the choccy to light it.

    (*) Decent in this case means "having enough time to hold the choccy and pop the flash at it and not any value of technical perfection. Besides, technical perfection in this instance would make it look too fake :o)

      Next time...

      Glass table. Polish, leave outside, and put the mars bar on it. Then angle yourself so that you can shoot the reflection of the moon... ;-)

      But considering how hard you made it on yourself, well done!
