PTC: Fruit Splash

by Chossid July. 27, 2012 10699 views

This is what I did ~ I bought a big brandy snifter. Strawberry season is long past here, and the only things I could find were plums and something called “kizil.” Found that less water and more energy in throwing the fruit made splashes, as opposed to just dropping the fruit. Then tried it with a kitchen spoon. Camera mainly on tripod (some hand held) with macro lens and sports setting (continuous shooting for moving objects.) I averaged 4 empty shots for each 1 with the fruits. Then some Picasa editing.

My assistant was a 16 year old boy, and I am very grateful to him, but just when I started to get the hang of it, he called it quits…

Same as 1 but HDR-ed

LOL! In looking back, 1 and 3 are the same shot with minor editing, making 3 clearer. So much for 1 vs 3!

Lol....I think we all had similar results. I set my timer with 3 consecutive shots so I got triple bad shots!
I love your spoon shots....so cool!

Kerplunk! Great splash in the first shot, although I do like those spoon shots too. Good job on this challenge Leah!

All good - I do like the first one the best, for some reason. I saw that someone else had also done something similar. Okay, so now [u][b]I[/b][/u] will have to try it!
