Posted By: Wiwa, 06-17-2016, 08:46 AM

splash learning attempt,with yn560iv flash at 1/64 bounced to the background + on camera flash at 1/64 diffused with white cloth .im using smartphone for the wireless trigger,a bit laggy
.lightroom for color & tone correction. this is the best i can process the jpg, i forgot to set raw..after i set raw,all the shot were crap ... self note "always shoot in raw"

here is the dodgy setup, sorry for the low quality

Great shot! I wonder if you would have more definition on the tea drops if you had black cards to the right and left, just behind the mug, but out of view. Not an easy subject to light!

Nope,nothing at all for the tea subject.the setup is just a dark glass as floor..see my facebook link,thats honestly it,as simple as that,im even surprised i got the shot.i put the setup at a corner so i get a lot of bouncing light,using both walls as reflector.the blacks is from the glass floor.the rest is a little touch in lightroom to fiddle with colors,tone and dirty spots..btw there is the unprocessed jpg bellow

i didnt get much of the splashes on the reflection,kinda hard to fiddle with the angle,havent got any tripod yet,i used cheap lightstand instead,on a tight room.its all i have at the moment.
.heres the unprocesed uncroped jpg bellow...i did clean up the splash spots on the floor with lightroom,desaturating the blue (wall reflection color) and crank up the red yellow orange.the rest of the splash is as it is shot.thx

I asked about the technique as I think the black line technique may have helped this image.See the link below for a good explanation of both the Black Line and White Line techniques.
