Bit of a rush job on the background, and still needs a bit of work to sort out the random reflections. With limited kit and for a first attempt with both water and a dark background (with no backdrop) was quite pleased with the result.
Taken on a kitchen worktop, I stood the glass on a reflector cover, black side up.
I had the 430EX on 1/8 power behind (and firing through) a white reflector to the left of the glass, and a snooted YN something flash on the second lowest power setting (I’m assuming 1/32), to the right. The snoot was a homemade one but did a good job of keeping the light off the wall behind.
Camera was on the tripod with a cheap ebay remote release. Water was poured from a normal jug, as I hit the button.
Imagine if you will an application that will allow you to control your Canon DSLR remotely using wireless networking.¬† I’m not talking about a wireless shutter release, I’m talking about Canon’s EOS Utility, available on your iPhone, to control a tethered camera from a completely different room (not sure why you’d really want to do this though).¬† It’s not the future, it’s been around for a while, but not content with it working as designed in the first place, the guys designing the software have now released a new version.
onOne Software – DSLR Remote for Canon DSLR Cameras & iPhone.
I saw this once before, but then my iPhone broke a little bit.¬† Actually, it broke quite a lot. Subsequent drama ensued when O2 (bless their cotton socks) refused to pay for it to be fixed, despite it only being a month or so outside of the 12 month warranty, and with 5 months remaining on my iPhone contract.
That aside, I now have a new job, and a new iPhone – Once I’ve checked the corporate policy regarding “suitable” applications for both the laptop and phone, I may well be giving this a whirl.
