To freeze that moment which the eye can’t see, even while watching…
For the longest time, I have admired some amazing photographs I’ve seen around, but my previous half-hearted and ill-planned attempts have always left me feeling frustrated.
On a recent visit to a friend, I admired his prints dotted around the wall of his studio, of successful watersplash photography. I was delighted that he was prepared to set things up again for another shoot and was happy to invite me to join him.
While I have lots to improve on, I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to experiment and learn. Sadly I still don’t know which settings were the most successful – we switched ambient lights on and off, and made various changes during the course of the shoot, but now don’t remember which resulted in the most pleasing effects!
My basic set up was a Manfrotto tripod, Nikon D3 camera, Nikkor 105mm macro lens and Nikon SB-800 speedlight.
