Gripping ~ Explored

Pleased with the clarity of the water in this one. Just a touch of dye to match the balloon colour (you can just see next to my index finger). The darkness that I used to attribute to miss-timed flashes I'm now thinking are drops far back enough to interfere wth the backdrop strobe and cast shaddows. Might go back to backlight next time.


Finally dark enough at night (or dark early enough!) to start shooting again. Plus it's still warm out! Only got a few keepers, but they're definitely colourful. Looking forward to shooting again.



Strobist: SB800 camera left, 1/64th, 85mm, pointed directly at subject. SB600 camera right, gelled yellow, 1/64th, 85mm, pointed at backdrop. Balloon filled with blue/green dyed water. Correction in Aperture.
