Molix' Punitor, studio shot in a tank with water drop

I have two photos done this way and they are among my favourite ever. This is probably as far as I managed to get to the "artistic" side of a product photo so far. Please don't get me wrong I don't want you to think I'm so arrognat to believe I'm producing any kind of art, but as far as my small brain and limited photography skills concern, this is among the finest I could do. Funny enough it didn't take long to get the "right" water drop, I used a small dispenser of a medicine and worked pretty well. The framing doesn't include 100% od the lure because with every drop it was slightly moving on the right and when I got the good water drop a part of it was outside the frame and I was too tired to start all over again :-)


SB800 bare on camera left same height of the lure

SB800 through honlphoto grid on camera right slightly above the lure

Both flashes triggered with Nikon CLS
