Another attempt.... Taken with Nikkor 105mm
Thanks for looking.
Need a faster shutter speed. The droplets are blurry
Wow. Are you going to become the Mapplethorpe of water?
1/200s, f/13, ISO200, flashed. More of a case the offending droplets were beyond the focus point, methinks.
Offending blurred droplets removed. It actually draws more focus to the imagery in my mind by removing them. I see a Florence Nightingale coming to the aid of a wounded warrior. Thanks Sach.
Certainly not even close (on multiple layers ), but thanks all the same.
Good job on the edit. It's not typically a smooth backflow of water like I see in the others...with the ruff surface area i think it almost resembles ice. The color in your background is unique, and so is the shape. I really like it alot. Also the background compliments the shot more.
Not as interesting as number #1. The first one fills up the frame. This shot has too much empty space and the composition of the backflow of water isn't that great.
Blurred or not, I really like the colors. Good job.
Thanks Tom and Camz.
The colors are the easy part....... just dig out one (of my several) tie-dyed tee shirts.
Here's the set-up. Bowl of water on a two-step ladder. I bungeed a water bottle on a boom.... squeeze with one hand and trigger the remote with the other. I had three SB flashes bouncing in different directions. The toothbrush (no longer in service) was used to get a focal point in the bowl of water. The micro-fibre cloth was used to remove the water on lens. The umbrella was not used in the end, awfully tight space.
Comments much appreciated.
Sweet Jesus that's a lot of equipment in that little bathroom. Heh.
Nice setup kundalini. Although it's not the equipment I'm worried about acquiring...it's the shirt!
i like em! very cool colors.
I like it a lot. Check out Paul Licht on flickr if you're into water lenses. He never fails to impress.
I like the results, and I am impressed with the set-up. Very creative.
