I have been wanting to take photos of water splashes for sometime now, finally decided it was time to take the plunge (hahaha, okay, that was bad…sorry)! I had a really good time with my self-imposed assignment and am really looking forward to capturing more.
The setup. I was on the hunt for a bowl today and on the recommendation of a friend (thank you Trisha and by the way all you readers, go check out her blog…Seasons Best Eats), I found some really cheap see-through plastic bowls which came in multiple colours. For this shot, I used a purple bowl, a baby blue foam board, my Canon Speedlite 430 EX II and finally my Tamron SP 60mm f/2 macro. Purple bowl…full of water (well dur). Blue foam board right behind the bowl, Speedlite to camera left and aimed at the foam board, set to 1/4 power. Did I mention I had an awesome time (yeah yeah, I am a geek at heart)!
