Day #2092Title: A Splash Of Brandy
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 2 x YN560 from behind, through Stofen diffusers @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from RHS, through Softbox @ 1/32; 1 x YN560 from above LHS, through Softbox @ 1/64
Notes: I’m giving a talk and demo on my Splash photography next week in Harlow, and since I haven’t used the SplashArt kit for a while, I thought I better get it out and have a play to make sure it all still worked. I had the idea for this shot a couple of days ago, but have only just had the time to set it up. Before you are scandalised by the quantity of brandy in the glass, I will shatter your illusions and let on that it’s actually cold tea! I thought it would also make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #39 – Product Shot.

Day #1910Title: Colour Cream Chaos
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from top LHS, bare @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from bottom RHS and LHS, bare @ 1/64
Notes: Another quick crown splash session in my studio this evening – this time messing about with some cream and food colouring. I liked the randomness of this one.

Day #1908Title: Don’t Drink The Water
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from top LHS, bare @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from top RHS, bare @ 1/64
Notes: Not quite what I had intended for this evening’s splash session, but things weren’t working out right. I was trying a different liquid which didn’t behave as expected. Oh well, there’s always another day.

Day #1904Title: Smashing Rainbows
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from behind @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from RHS through Opteka gridded snoot @ 1/64
Notes: More fun in the studio today, this time some splash crowns using a DVD-R as the base. It looked like something was smashing up the rainbows into their constituent colours!

Day #1903Title: Double Bubble
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 2 x YN560 from behind through yellow gels and perspex @ 1/128; 1 x YN560 from behind LHS through Opteka gridded snoot @ 1/128
Notes: I had a really productive couple of hours in the studio this evening, playing about with more splash shots – mainly shooting them through soap bubbles. The bubbles are incredibly delicate, but the drops are travelling fast and are able to punch a hole through the bubble membrane without popping them. This was the one I liked best – you can see some drops just about to break through into the bubble. I thought it would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #53 – Delicate.

Day #1901Title: Storm In A Teacup
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from above right through Opteka gridded snoot @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from low each side through softbox @ 1/64
Notes: This morning I got my Splash Art Kit working again, after some teething troubles last night. This patriotic cup and saucer has seen action on Day #1614, but I thought it was crying out for some tea splashes. It also makes a great image for Treasure Hunt Theme #64 – Coffee Break or Tea-time. Here’s another shot from the session in my cheeky fake lens mug! And here’s how it was done.
