Splish Splash

By Imran / March, 31, 2006 / 19 comments

I guess some photographers go through this phase – when dropping a variety of fruits in water seems like a jolly good idea.

After an hour or so I figured if lady luck is not on my side I can drop this strawberry a gazillion times and still not get the shot that I wanted. So I settled with this one.

Gonna try my luck with oranges tomorrow.

    It is a good shot by my standards. After getting a shot like this, I’d have known that the lady luck is indeed on my side

    Hi Imran. This is really nice work! Mind if I ask how did you set this up? the black background was a black backdrop or being psed? Since you’re using 1/400s and f22 without flash, the area must be pretty bright right? Artificial lighting?

    Hope I’m not asking too much.. thanks!

    This is an amazing shot; you managed to capture the splashing water wonderfully well.

  • clarence

    Great shot, but the EXIF data tells me its even a greater shot. No flash, and at f22! amazing!

  • Imran

    Thanks to everyone for their comments. :)

    Ray> Heh..The EXIF is deceiving. I used a single studio strobe triggered via a sync cord, which is why it didn’t reflect in the EXIF. The shot’s done in a light tent, with a black background. Since the light shines from the side, the background is pretty much black, so I just need to increase the contrast in PS. Hope that answers your queries. :)

    Hi Imran, I believe this could be the 1000th shot. Hehe. Even though I’ve seen this shot like a dozen times elsewhere, I think you caught this one unbelievably well. Keep me excited ya. Cheers!

    PS: I still can get my comments box to work… sigh…

    ah the water shots. cliche as they may be, these shots are always so fascinating to look at. esp the movement of the water. could do with more splash tho. more flying water. love the movement detail in the glass.
