Large On Black

 

I haven't uploaded anything for a while, i've been too busy cleaning and ordering my Aperture library and taking more pictures to make the mess even bigger....

But i think i can now start catching up with my stream.

 

This is an old one, taken with the old Sony 350 bouncing the flash on a white cardboard and adjusting the White Balance to get the blue tones.

 

Drop photography is really about try and error, and a lot of patience. It is worth it to make a good setup. With a big enough surface to avoid getting everything wet. A towel. A tripod or a stand that holds a bottle with a hole for the drops to come out. But above all the trick is in lighting. Always remember that its NOT the water that you should light but the wall behind it.

 

Strobist info: Sony Flash 42 bare @ 1/16, bounced of a white cardboard to the left and about 30/40 cm away. Triggered via the in-camera flash.
