Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photograph in my makeshift studio aka my shower basin in my home's washroom.
Time
This shot required a dark environment so the time of day wasn't a key factor as it was executed indoors.
Lighting
In a dimly lit room I exposed the subject with to off camera flash guns. One either side of the subject.
Equipment
I used a Canon EOS 400D with a Canon 60mm f2.8 ef-s lens. It was mounted on a tripod with the subject exposed with the off camera Lumopro flash guns. To activate the flashes I used my Stop Shot module with microphone connection. For the reflection at the bottom I used a piece of black plexiglass. The object was a champagne glass filled with milk and food colouring which I then shot with a gas powered bb gun.
Inspiration
I have always love high speed photography.Capturing water dropping, water splashing and things smashing is addictive. No result is ever the same. It's exciting to see the flash strike and see the instant moment live and to then see it on the camera.
Editing
Luckily with this particular shot there wasn't much post-processing. A little cloning out of stray drops and some levels adjusting saw the photo finished pretty quickly. The clean up in my shower was unfortunately something photoshop couldn't do for me. Glass tends to go everywhere.
In my camera bag
I usually carry my Nikon D810 and D700 with Nikkor 12-24mm f4, Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 and Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 lenses. I also have a tripod and a selection of filters for long exposures.
Feedback
The possibilities are endless when wanting to break things. I will say to be very careful. Glass breaks into small pieces and can go unnoticed when cleaning. Be safe but also have fun with it.
