Sick and bored = good photos
Posted By: codiac2600, 02-22-2008, 04:38 PM

I have a cold, stayed home from work and got super bored. Tried a new approach to lighting and here are the results. Sorry for the wrinkles in the paper... it's about 20 years old and has a strange texture and wrinkles much too easily.

Test shot:


Final shot:


Test shot #2

I like the first final a lot! There is something very satisfying to see a good photo of clear water and pure transparent glass, specially in an action like this!

Thanks for sharing your experimental work with us, again!

I like the 2nd one best. In the 1st the glass is not quite vertical. Probably your cold, you must have sneezed.
Lol, naw no sneeze just a test shot for the lighting etc. Nailed the settings in one try which doesn't happen often.

Chris - great stuff, as always. Actually, what's wrong with wrinkles in the backdrop paper?They give the pictures some texture - maybe even character. Had you not mentioned them, I would have thought they were "part of the act", as we used to say in my gigging days.

Jer
Ha thanks Jer... I'm not a fan on wrinkles I guess. Clean images scream professional to me, but the wrinkles don't look bad by any means in the final result.

I'm sorry that you're sick... but, I love it when you're bored! That second shot... composition, timing, color..... ah, bravo!
Lol, thanks Hamid. I always have some of my best work when I'm bored because I have the whole time to plan it through I guess.

#2 for me is best.
Question: Did you use flash to stop the action or shutter speed or both?
Thank you and it was the flash that stopped the action, used 1/180 shutter

I think the jury is in........

#2 should be in a magazine! Excellent shot. Was this shot pulled off with a back light and a side flash only? (burst mode and remote release)
Lol, thank you. A light under and shot up into the background, table was elevated and shot in single shot with cable release. I'm too used to the timing on the K10D.

I like the last 2 shots. You are very good with lighting
Thanks James.

I seem to be the only guy tout here preferring final shot no1. There is much more attention drawn to where the action is... in the splashing glass.

Agreed; The glass could be exactly vertical; or more off the verical axis (= more intentionally not-vertical).

Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Syb.

You should make sure you get bored on a regular basis Chris. Very creative images. Nice lighting.

Thanks Peter and I'm finally better today and have the urge to check the forums again.
