Day #1418 Title: Candy Crown
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from left with DIY gridded snoot @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from behind through perspex with DIY softbox @ 1/64; timed with CameraAxe5 and Valve sensor
Notes: I spent the evening happily playing with crowns and water splashes again. I was experimenting with different mixes in the dropper and drop pool. This is water thickened with Xanthan gum and blue food colouring, dropped into a small pool of double cream mixed with red food colouring. I liked the colour and texture combinations.

Day #1407 Title: Frilly Skirt
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from each side with Stofen softbox @ 1/128, timed with CameraAxe5 and Valve Sensor.
Notes: I had great fun playing about with the CameraAxe and Valve sensor for the first time today. A lot of trial and error, some maths and several flat batteries later, I got there in the end. I was pretty pleased with my first efforts. How it was done.
