I hadn’t done a high-speed image for a couple of weeks, so I decided tonight would be a good chance to do another one. I knew I wanted something different from my typical splash shots though, so I once again brought out the oil, and tried a new angle this time around. I have to admit it was scary at times with my camera hovering over the action.
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!
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.
**Catching up now that I have photoshop again…
I had a couple of Bud Lights left over from the fourth of July, and I am not a fan of Bud Light and so I knew I wanted to use them for a photo. Monday I got back from class and there was only a little bit of light left, but it was still bright enough to do some faster shutter things and so I decided it was a good time to use the beer.
So, here is what comes out of a completely random, spur of the moment shoot involving old beer.
