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.

I had been wanting to do some high-speed for the past few days, specifically throwing some water. And while I was mowing today I noticed these stumps in my backyard that the utility guys left when they cut down a tree. My mind immediately went to this for some reason. It is definitely an idea that I plan to play with more, especially with more light than I had tonight.

It started raining this evening, and I got excited because I would finally have a chance to use my rain cover that I bought a bit ago. I got some pictures, and headed inside, only to look outside and find that the sun was shinning. I ran back outside, because how often do you get a chance to take pictures of rain while it is sunny out? It was just sprinkling when I got out there and I was shooting away, when all of a sudden a downpour began. It was as if someone dumped a bucket of water on me. Within seconds I was completely soaked. I left a puddle in the entry way, and squeezed a ton of water out of my shirt and shorts. I got quite a few pictures I like, so expect more soon!
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.
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.
It stormed out of no where today. All of a sudden it started down pouring, so hard that visibility was greatly reduced. And it got super windy for a couple of minutes, but then stopped. It was crazy, and of course I grabbed my camera and ran outside in it.
