    Hi,

    Got a new (cheap) flash for my camera and started playing with it. I don't have any studio equipment which made this somewhat harder. For instance the flash was bounced off the bathroom wall and the black background is a couple of black T shirts. The red stuff in the water of top two photos is concentrated juice.

    Feel free to comment!

    these are sweet pictures! I would have never been able to tell you didn't shoot these in a studio. I applaud your creativeness. I can't really offer any technical compliments b/c im still new to photography but IMO these are awesome :thumbup:

    well done, i reckon that the last image is the best of the lot, it gets rid of the distracting elements. as TMWallace said, great creativity with the shirts and juice.

    have you seen the bryan peterson strawberries into water video, pretty good.

    Thanks for all the comments!

    No I haven't seen that video but now that you mentioned it, i think i found the right one on youtube. It was surprisingly simple set-up. Actually, i haven't really watched any tutorials / videos / instructions regarding this kinda freeze motion stuff... i just got an idea which, after a few failures and a lot of thinking, started working. I was pleased with my results and i'm glad that you like it as well!

    I also am liking the last one the best. Something about seeing more of the detail on things because its closer up

    You did quite well with the camera settings.

    Try a light colored background too.
