Amateur Photographer Splash

I hope you will excuse a moment of pure self-indulgence however I'm over the moon today!


Amateur Photographer published a whole 2 pages of my pictures in their latest edition (17th Oct). The first time I've ever seen my stuff in print and it's really a milestone for me. This splash is dedicated to them :) freshly created last night.


I'd like to thank them for publishing my pictures, it's really given me a boost, hopefully if there's a next time I'll have some even more amazing shots for them :)


Real thanks need to go however to everyone here on flickr, all the friends and contacts and random visitors that view my pictures and leave great comments that really gives me the enthusiasm to keep going :)


Thanks to you all.

Info on creating the splashes : (Updated!)


(Strobist info : Vivitar 285 and 283 behind the splash firing through a 1920's 'marigold' carnival glass bowl (I really need to get some gold gels!) fired with a manual push button trigger wired to the flashes through hot-shoe pc-sync cables.
