Round 2! 3-speedlite setup this time.

Didn't realize until later, but it almost looks like there's something burning behind me! :p


Frig, I gotta try this out ASAP, thanks for sharing. Cool website by the way...

Been looking long enough, time to post my effort.

IMAGE: http://images.yuku.com/image/pjpeg/6bc2649432596925b60d9e436f945001c00d09f1.JPG

My setup: an IV kit to regulate the drips, 430ex camera right (1/8th pwr through umbrella) 1/125, f22, ISO 400. I put a bolt in the cake pan and pre-focused on it (manual)

IMAGE: http://images.yuku.com/image/pjpeg/92d36e7a4a3b508894f0b6d5ded143ef2cdb1abf.jpg

You can see 3 colored sheets in the setup photo. These reflected in the water gave the colors.

I liked this one, see the hippo going after the water drop.:)

First one's my favourite, I like the way you can see the three coloured stripes in the drops.

I really love those metallic background ideas, with a short DOF they look awesome and should be fun for fashion shoots. Thanks for the ideas, Stephen! :)

Maybe a reflector on camera right could have helped reduce the shadows. Food looks great, I bet it was yum!

You have a flash already on the left side, so you use a reflector to bounce that back onto the subject to fill the right side.
Or you could use another flash on the right side.

You can also try to bounce the light off the ceiling. It will reduce the shadows (because the light comes from a wide area, like an overcast sky) but it will also reduce the specularity of the light which makes this image pop. Try it and see whether you like it.
