Splash !!!

By chase
Decided to try something completley different as my Yin has Yanged & my Yan has so done a runner Sad

So here ya go,my first real attempt at water splashes,not the best/sharpest I have ever seen so I made it a bit different.
Everything you see on the screen actually making the image was there at the time of shooting,I have only added a couple of textures.The 'bowler hat at the bottom,well,an added bonus when I looked at the images on the computer.
Lit with off camera flash pointing at a sheet of dark pink paper stuck to my kitchen wall with a lump of blu-tac.The water was quite shallow,just covering the very bottom of a glass oven dish.I hung a small plastic bag full of water on one of my wall cupboard handles & popped it with a pin..voila !!..drips !
The trick was the focus bit,took me ages to get anywhere near.
No posh remote triggers just me,watching the drips & triggering the shutter with my remote release Wink

I love the reflections & the shape of the splash.

Thanks for getting this far....this one is a re-load,you were right Ade...too dark even by my standards Wink

Like wise haven't made an attempt at this but would give it a go, as your set up seems simplicity its self.

Fantastic for first attempts.
I know people who have done this kind of thing
and they took hundreds of shots to get something acceptable.
The reflection does look like a hat with a flower on it.
Very well done.
Superb timing well captued, good idea that works well, I have had a go at this but nothing as good as this, well done indeed.

Aint bad Jan

Always think these images look good when shot at eye level to the splash rather than an angle above. Still , guess that means fish tanks and triggers etc !

As its been done to death, how about going arty farty and using it as a base image , slap a bit of light , add two souls , think gravity and erm , all that..

Mods should be slapped x
