357/365 – Celebrate

I don’t like this. But it was the absolute only idea I could come up with, and one of the few that actually turned out to be anything decent. The colors are weird, and the shadow bothers me, and it is just boring; but oh well. And, I am aware that this would have been more fitting for last night’s photo.

307/365 – Crowned

I am aware that this is not original, and that I have done something very similar before. But, I was really craving some high-speed stuff, and I had been wanting to try for a bigger splash than I have been able to get before, so I figured I would give it a shot. I was losing daylight fast, and I needed a faster shutter speed, but didn’t want to lose depth of field, and didn’t want to way under expose them, and my ISO was already very high, so this is what I ended up with. Which, I wish I could have had a larger depth of field as well, but, oh well.

Oh, and the title is because one of the pictures looked like a crown, and that title was stuck in my head, and I couldn’t think of anything else, so it just stuck.

193/365 – Coffee and Cream

I am constantly fascinated with how liquids behave, especially drops into liquids. I don’t think it is something that I will ever get used to or grow sick of seeing.

I am not a huge coffee drinker despite the fact that I own a coffee maker (left to me by my sister-in-law). However when my dad was in town he bought some coffee and creamer, and so I decided today I needed to drink so. Plus it was just a good day for it. I recently saw a picture on Flickr of a drop of cream into coffee and so I wanted to give it a try. I know it isn’t the most interesting or spectacular image, but I am pretty happy with the results. I may upload a couple of others, at different “‘stages” of the drop.

I used a SB-600 on camera, bounced off a wall, but unfortunately cannot remember what I had it set at. Any feedback would be appreciated, I am always looking to improve!

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.
