59/365 – Triple

I know I just did a shot the other night with water, but I got this idea in my head and couldn’t wait to try it. Luckily I had my mom to help me out with dropping some pebbles since I am home. It is always a tricky enough process to time my dropping with my pressing of the button on my remote and then the shutter actually being released, but adding another person in to the mix made it even more difficult to get the timing right. There were very few pictures (out of a lot taken) that actually had a splash in all three glasses. Either one of us missed entirely, or would go early or late, or the remote wouldn’t work, or I just time it wrong with the remote. But we managed to still get some awesome shots. And, it was nice having someone else to experience the strange looks that I always get from neighbors or people driving by.

And, please remember to go vote for my portfolio and tell everyone that you know! You can vote once a day. I so appreciate each and every vote I can get, thank you for the support!

131/365 – Crying over spilled milk

I decided to be brave and use my flash today so I could get some high-speed stuff. I usually am not a fan of flash for two reasons. A) I am not very good with it, and B) a lot of times it is obvious flash was used and I love how natural light looks. But, I decided to give it a try, and I managed to get something good out of it (in my opinion at least)! Plus I finally figured a few things out which will help so much in future shoots.

I had busted this glass a couple of weeks ago but saved it in hopes of being able to use it for a picture. So I am pumped I found a use for it. And being the photo nerd I am, I am still saving it to use it again, pieces and all.
