A fire in the fireplace in my house.

Smoke Experiments (9 Image Post)

Friday, October 27th, 2006

Sorry about the huge post, but rather then posting nothing but smoke pictures for the next few weeks, I decided to post a bunch at once instead. I played around experimenting with smoke, after 155 shots it was hard to choose some to post, and there are lots more I wanted to post, but I think 9 is enough for one night.

Yet Another Water Drop

Sunday, October 22nd, 2006

I decided to give photographing water droplets another shot, the lighting still isn’t quite what I wanted, so yet another try will be done later.

Martini and Lipstick

My friend from the Pink Bubble shot also helped me with this one by applying the pink lipstick to the glass.

Hanging in the Air (Revisited)

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

After looking at the shot I posted yesterday, I decided I wasn’t very happy with the shot and attempted the setup again today. Here are two shots, one as a drop hits the water initially, and the other a moment after that as a droplet is thrown into the air.
