Day #1777 Title: Purple & Pink Splash
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 @ 1/64 through purple gel, 1 x YN560 @ 1/64 through pink gel, both through milky perspex to rear
Notes:  A late night splash session produced some good results at last. When I tried collision shots before, I was using just water, from too small a drop height, and was having trouble with shutter lag. This time I used 20% corn syrup solution dropped from about 20cm into water, with a little Rinse Aid in the drop zone. And I found the mirror lock-up function on the 7D which meant the shutter lag was negligible. Soon I was getting lots of interesting shapes – then it was a case of playing around with lighting and drop size/timing to see what happened. Read my full review of the Splash Art Kit.
