Today’s post is inspired by Joanna of H2O by Joanna. She’s done this kind of shoot before. I’ve kept the idea on the back burner for a day when I had a lot going on. I have will be doing a “gallery” showing at a local coffee shop in September jointly with a friend who paints, so we hung out and discussed the the upcoming show and just caught up on life.
For today’s shoot, I set up my camera with my macro lens pointing straight at the water stream from my kitchen faucet. I set the appetite wide open, and used my seedlight hand held and manually triggered. My exposure was about 1/2 sec so I could synchronize the flash and shutter easily and not over expose the image.
