Splash Photography — How To Shoot A Splash Scene

posted on 14th of november, 2011

Splash photography is challenging and a lot of fun. The reason – it requires some precise coordination, the results are wonderful and you are going to have a lot of fun practicing some coordination with your assistant while witnessing some funny moments. Let’s get started with this fun e-workshop.

Items Required For Splash Photography

You need 4 white acrylic sheets each of a size of 18 inches, a tripod to mount the camera, a glass, some water or a liquid of your choice, some ice-cubes and an assistant. (Of course you need a camera too – a DSLR works the best).

Nice subject you opened up here. My piece of advice for others trying to create splashes: use remote shutter trigger with one hand and release the "bomb thing" with the other hand. This way you're in full control of the drop. Of course, you have to set the whole thing in advance: flash(es) intensity, camera position and don't forget to switch to manual focus mode on your lenses. Another piece of advice: press the remote trigger button half way down to lock the focus and drop the package only after you have the focus confirmation. This way your timing will be more precise. Have fun experimenting!!! Sorry about the assistant, there's no need for one, well, maybe yes, after the shooting session - to clean up the mess :)

posted on 15th of november, 2011

Besides your camera, your memory card may be the most important piece of equipment in your photo bag. Without a memory card, your camera won’t work, and if it’s not operating right, you could lose all your images from a long day of shooting. The good news is that by learning some basic maintenance tips and best practices, you can keep your cards running at peak performance and help ensure you don’t lose the images you worked hard to capture.

1. Format the Card in Your Camera

Whenever inserting your memory card into a camera, be sure to format the card in the camera so it’s completely prepared to work with the hardware. We don’t recommend that you use the same memory card in multiple cameras, unless you’ve already removed the important images...

About me

Photography was always my favorite hobby, but my romance with microstock photography really began when I joined Dreamstime. I felt like it was the right place to build a career out of my hobby and I was right. Dreamstime is more like a school rather than a microstock agency. If you're a newbie, then it is here where you'll learn all about microstock.
