Day #1826

Day #1826 Title: Perpendiculars
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: Finally some sunshine today! So I took the opportunity to walk into town and find a couple of geocaches. One was near the Salvation Army Citadel (which I last photographed on Day #443). This is a different angle of the same building. I liked the striking graphic shapes against the blue sky.

Day #1799

Day #1799 Title: Pink Milkshake
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from above each side, through pink and blue gels @ 1/64
Notes: I was giving a talk and demo this evening on my liquid splash photography with the Splash Art Kit. I always like to give it a go before packing it up to take on the road, just to make sure it all works. I tried using milk for my tests today, with mixed success. This is the 1% fat variety, which worked reasonably well. Later on I tried full fat, which wasn’t half as good as I’d expected – far too blobby and the collisions just weren’t happening as much. More experimentation needed, perhaps.

Day #1782

Day #1782 Title: Sunset Splash
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Stroblist: 2 x YN560′s through coloured gels @ 1/64, both shooting through milky perspex from the rear; 1 x YN560 from RHS @ 1/64 through Opteka gridded snoot
Notes:  This evening I gave my High Speed Flash & Water Splash talk and demo at Ingatestone CC. So this afternoon I had a quick session in the studio to check all the gear was working before packing it up and setting off for the club. Now I’ve managed to get a big enough drop tank, I can capture some great reflections of the splashes in the water. I liked the colour combination for this one. Read my full review of the Splash Art Kit.
