Behind The Lens

Location
In the studio
Time
mid afternoon
Lighting
the water was lit with a broncolor bi tube bi cable head powered by a scoro 3200 watt powerpack for a short 1/8000th of a second flash duration, and i was lit with a beauty dish from camera left and up
Equipment
canon 5d mark 3 and 100mm a
Inspiration
the fist of water was an outtake from a commercial job and the moment it came up on screen we knew we had to pair it with a picture of someone getting punched, so when we had some time, we had a couple of people in the studio sit for a shot, where a small bucket of water was thrown at them, but they all turned away in anticipation! so in exasperation, i was like, i will pose and show you how its done and this was how i got this image, and yes i did yell each time :-)
Editing
apart from basic lightroom colour work and masking in the fist, there wasn't much to do
In my camera bag
5D Mark 3, now SR, 100mm macro, 50mm 1.4, 16-35
Feedback
experiment! catalog your images, and keep going back to look at them. pick 10 favorites and print them up and stick them on your wall
