A Messy Milkshake Recipe

This is my entry for the "food" assignment on DIYP. It illustrates the mess I'd make trying to make a milkshake :).

Strobist Info:

Multiple exposures 580ex ii between 1/8th and 1/16th into silver umbrella pw trigger

and 258hv @ 1/16th power into litedome xs pc trigger


DIYP info:

Used high-speed photography. Shot falling fruit on black and composited using blend-if layers and masking. Each falling fruit was shot using generally short flash duration to freeze motion; however, I varied the power of the 580ex to create slight blur in some of the objects. The 580ex with silver umbrella was above the fruit to the left and softbox below to the right creating a contrasty light. In post, once all the pieces were put together, a high-pass was used with hard light to enhance details.


Addt'l diy gear used: homemade shutter release to trigger the camera connected to the 40d with this adaptor.
