Splash of Flavor

Amazing what you can do with a little fruit, a glass of water and some strobes. I had more fun tonight. I felt like a little kid fooling around in the sandbox with a garden hose. So much so that I'm afraid I may have disturbed my daughter's studies with my giggling.

I think it's time for my bath. Now where did I leave my ducky...

Shot with 50mm at f7.1, 1/125th, iso 100, using three strobes - one gelled 'canary' for the background.


  1. Very cool! How many times did you have to wipe up water off the counter and reshoot? And is there a gel coloring the wall? Nice shot! It's fun when you get to eat the props afterwards huh? Well.... sometimes...

  2. Fantastic - I like the colours the composition and the movement. Very creative - the strawberries look nice too!!

    Did you photograph your setup?

  3. Thanks guys.

    Tim, yes I did use a 'canary' gel on the foamcore background. This was the 3rd drop, though I took a bunch to get the lighting the way I wanted it.

    Alan, you can find a setup shot here

  4. Thanks for the setup. I will be copying this ideas very soon - well as soon as my triggers arrive!!
