Birthday Bomb

    Newer Older

    Aedan had his 10th Birthday Party a little late. It snowed and the wind was pretty fierce, but Diet Coke and Mentos still works at this temperature!

    Strobist: SB-600 on Auto FP mode, flash sync to camera at 1/2500s exposure. Flash mostly lit the foreground, bright sunlight did the rest.

      Thanks... yes, we'd have to explain it to the parents of the kids, otherwise. "Hey, what's this brown goo all over my boy's jacket?" Heh.

      He's not into the diet stuff, I'm sure he'd be okay with it.

      wow, so glad I clicked on it, thumbnail just doesn't explain enough. love the motion.

      now if only that was diet RC cola, my work would probably pay for a giant poster size of that to hang in the office!

      That's right, it's "DIET" Questionable then...
      Anyone for a "Sticky Coke Snowball fight"?

      One of the best mentos fountains on the entire site. Great shot, and our new icon.

      Woodleywonderworks: You're my hero!
      Lisa: Thanks! Darn, next time I'd have to try it with the RC version of the cola.
      Ktelqueen: Happenstance... I love it when a plan comes together. It was so windy I could hardly tell if my camera was catching what I hoped it would.
      James: Thanks man.
      Lev: Thanks.

      Good one, Neal. Love the "Lomo effect" processing of the image.
      Glad that no 2 l. bottle of "real" coke was hurt in the making of this image ;-)

      Lomo effect=heavy vignetting/wide angle

      It's true, Silke, a very explosive cascade as all of the gasses are released at once.
