The Shield by KarlDawson The Shield by KarlDawson
Mid-air water droplet collision. I finally got external flashes working on a separate trigger output of the StopShot (the variable and wacky shutter lag on Canon cameras is *not* fun), and this is one of the results.

Taken in a wine glass with a white light-tent as a backdrop, and a matallic green card placed behind the glass and part way up the tent. One flash was pointed at the backdrop, with a second aimed at droplet height to the left, and fired through red gell.

This is a strong abstract, no manipulation to get the end result and that's what amazes me about the shapes and movement captured here!

I think it would be fun but my wife
is the enemy of fun where her kitchen
is concerned. Especially if I am trying to
cook something up with science.
