One more from the night

Cube of ice dropped into a glass of water.
The colour is from a gelled flash. Just snooted it and pointed it at the glass.

Nikon D80
Nikkor 50mm
f/6.7 at 1/90 secs
SB800 gelled and snooted fired at the glass.

    oh NICE!! (or should i say ICE? LOL) very good. i just love red/black combo! X

  • Cheers Sally – thought this kind of a shot would tickle your fancy.
    Yellow, green, blue, red – all work perfectly with black.
    Though I should probably try lighting on two planes next time around.

    Fab lighting and timing, Vikram! Just as I was thinking of trying an olive-splashing-into-martini shot myself! LOL!

  • Ooooh – now THAT is a more elegant shot Jo – go for it!!
    I can just imagine it – a pristine white background, a clear martini-glass and that one big olive (maybe stuffed to get a bit of red?) splashing into the glass!!
    Seemed to have lost the ability to experiment after 1.5 months of not shooting. Earlier, this kind of a thought would have come to mind during the shoot :-(
