Kiwi Splash No. 1

Fruits falling in cream. Strobist: Two speedlights, one against the background with a colored gel, one for the glass. With the second one I tried two alternatives: (1) a self-made snoot (rolled black cardboard), (1) an indirect light by flashing against a piece of white paper. The second one yields a nice softbox effect by enlarging the light source. The speedlights are triggered via a "Jokie" light barrier.

 

Post processing in Photoshop: Cloning out some spots, slightest contrast increase, white balance, sharpening.

You wanna try this yourself? Don't do it, it's an incredible mess.

You still wanna? Take water instead of cream.

Still wanna use cream? Make sure, your partner is not at home! :-)

Much nicer: View On Black.

Fullscreen: F11, back: F11 again.
