Day 3 of learning Splash photography. This time I used direct lighting with an outdoor spot light. Not sure what type of bulb, grabbed it from hubby's garage stuff. I did not use diffused light today. Light was set on the left side of subject, behind me.

1/1000 sec. F/3.5 ISO 150 24-70mm Nikkor Lens

This week I have been visiting the technique of "Splash Photography".
Yesterday I only used natural light. Don't even bother! In order to freeze liquid and splashes, you need tons of light. It's recommended to use strobe lighting.. but I have to admit, I don't work with them with food. Usually it's a softbox or natural lights. The previous day's attempts are super grainy, and not really worth sharing. But I may later to show the difference.
Today I used continuous spot lighting behind my light tent.
I still don't think there was sufficient lighting. :( But, I was, kinda, sorta, happy with one. :) What I do suggest, is your f-stop setting needs to be set to 8 or higher in order for your splashes to all be in focus.

Shooting with a Nikon 810, with a 60mm macro lens.

Hi, my name is Laurie.I am new here. I am a Southern Cal based food photographer.

My set up for this photo was a low table, with a large window behind. It was far enough behind so no shadows were cast. Sometimes I use velum on my windows during the brighter seasons.

I used two different color schemes for this project.. black backdrop with dark base, as well as a white backdrop with a marble base. I purchase small enough stone pieces at the local quarry to keep costs down.. and so I can carry them to my car by myself. :)

It's good to be here.. looking forward to getting to know you all!

My ISO '2000', 70mm, 1/400sec, f/2.8 24/70 Lens
