    As yesterdays Kinder Egg shots went down quite well, thought I would try for something a little more colourful today.
    Not quite so easy as this thing wasnt water tight, so holding it ready to drop, the water was running out. After a few shots though i developed a rhythm and it wasnt a problem.

    I wanted this to have a more advertisement type of feel to it, so there were quite a few shots that were discounted as the brand was obscured by the bubbles or stream of air. I was still spoilt for choice on which to edit and upload :)

    Lighting as used previously, a single Yongnuo YN460 set at 1/4 power and with its wide angle difusser in place. Shot through a sheet of white paper positioned to the left of the tank and fired with a radio trigger.
    Opposite this, on the right of the tank, a silver reflector to balance the one sided light.
    Behind the tank a blue background was positioned approx 300mm12 inches behind. yes thats right Blue, I had hoped it might add a hint of colour to the air, but it made such a slight difference, it is not really seen.

    Hopefully this will give others a few ideas and show that these type of shots dont always need to be of fruit or vegetables, nice though they are :)
