90% Water

This is an image from a recent set of studio images I created for a still life theme of "Still life + liquid = Impact". I wanted to show that the addition of liquid to every day still life objects can be made more interest and have greater visual impact if liquid is added.


A thick slice of cucumber was dropped into a glass tank filled with only 2 cms of water. The cucumber creates a hole in the water and if your lucky this wave pattern before it slides off in random directions depending on the angle it hits the water. Only 2 shots out of 50 had this wave effect so not easy to create. Cucumber is over 90% water, hence the title.
