Making A Storm In A Teacup

Next week I’m giving my High Speed Flash/Water Splashes talk and demo at Brighton & Hove Camera Club. Since I haven’t done any splash pictures for a while, I thought I would get the kit out again and have a play.

I’ve been meaning to use this fab teacup again. It was last seen on Day #1614, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. The above is an alternative to the shot which made it for Day #1901 – Storm In A Teacup. Here’s the setup:

Coincidentally, I was looking for an image for this week’s [email protected] project, and since the cups needed to be photographed a little further away for the full effect, my Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM was perfect for the job. Above right is an alternative for Teabreak Time In The Studio which I chose for [email protected] (2013) #11, seen in the previous post. Mum and Dad gave me the fake lens mug for Christmas and it was crying out for a shot like this!
