Day #1295 Title: Inner Blues

Strobist: 1 x YN560 from behind with DIY softbox @ 1/64, 1 x YN560 from camera right with DIY gridded snoot @ 1/16
Notes: Another dreary day outside so I spent it at home working through my To Do list. Satisfying, but a little bit boring, I’m afraid.

Day #1280 Title: What’s On The Menu?
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 Speedlite, camera right, through DIY softbox @ 1/128; 1 x YN560 from camera left on background, through Stofen diffuser, @ 1/64
Notes: This is the wonderfully tactile remote control from my AppleTV, a design which is simplicity itself. It’s finished in brushed aluminium and has gracefully curved buttons – they just make you want to play with it! Lit by my new DIY softbox to give gentle shadows and no harsh reflections.

Day #1279

Day #1279 Title: Go With The Flow
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 Speedlite, from behind through opaque plastic and coloured bowl @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from camera right, through Stofen diffuser, @ 1/128
Notes: I spent much of the afternoon experimenting with water droplet shots. My main issue was the fact I was having to time the exposure to catch the drops and splash by hand, and also didn’t have anything to mount the pipette on, so the position of the drops landing made focussing rather difficult. Still, all a learning curve. This was the best shot of the lot, I liked the patterns and the purple colour! How it was done.
