A Drop In The Glass
I had to give a particular cliche type of photography a try. It was a Thursday night and I wasn't hosting the Smartphone Photographers Community hangout on air, so I decided to do something constructive.
I've seen for years photographs of splashing water, in particular, shots of water or beverages being poured into a glass. Based on my limited knowledge of cameras and photography, I knew those shots took some pretty decent skill and patience to pull off. Not to mention, a good hand at processing a photo. I've read a few articles and seen a few tutorials. I had to give it a try.
I grabbed the DSLR, some lights, a few glasses, a cup of water and have this a go. It took me maybe 30-45 minutes to figure the best camera settings for pulling this shot off. It was fun task and helped me learn a little more about the camera I own. Of course sharing it on my site here meant I had to compress the image so it wouldn't be so big online. I have another shot that similar to this, but you will have to follow me on Instagram to see it. (I'll publish it later today)
