Taken in France earlier this week. Unfortunately this shot doesn’t do it full justice. Shame I wasn’t brave enough to take the camera up with me the previous day as there were perfect blue skies. Weather wise it was around -30 Centigrade up there and visibility was worsening as the cloud dropped and snow flurries closed in
Following on from the plain droplet shots I found myself with another spare few minutes and tried something completely new…..
Learned quite a bit.
1) clean the glass, then clean it again
2) Frozen peas don’t make much of a splash
3) trying to drop things in a glass of water and photograph them at the same time is tricky
3) clean the glass, then clean the glass again
4) clean the glass
5) Bubbles form in the water without dropping anything in – nuisance.
6) Clean the glass.
It’s cold, but not snowing yet. Been a while since I’ve taken anything at all, let alone anything I’ve had to think about. Only tried this once before and was quite pleased with the results, so as I had a spare 10 minutes or so, thought I’d have another go.
These were taken on the 30D with a remote triggered Speedlight 430EX off to the side of the sink, need to get some coloured card to bounce the light off – Be interesting to see how it affects the outcome.
