February Challenge: Day 3 – Shot Glass Mirror

WEEK 1 = CLEAR

So week 1 is over, and it was way too short. I was kind of having fun shooting clear stuff. At the end of each week, I’ll post the final photo along with the thumbnails from the previous days. And I’ll also remind you all to participate in the February Challenge if you aren’t already doing so.

This was a CLEAR shot glass partially full of CLEAR liquid posed on top of a mirror and lit with an off-camera slave flash. Funny thing about this photo — it was the first shot out of about 50. I guess I’m just that good. I could’ve saved myself about half an hour of messing around with flash angles and diffusers. Oh well, it’s good practice.

OK, so I kind of cheated on this one too. I actually took the photo on day 4 rather than day 3. Shame on me. But I came up with the idea on the 3rd… does that count for anything?

February Challenge: Day 2 – Liquid Ice

WEEK 1 = CLEAR

I’m kind of bending the rules on the project… this is actually a grayscale image. The photo was pretty much black and white anyways, and it had some extra impact by going grayscale. I’m going to justify it being ok because my color of the week is clear — so this trick probably won’t work when I choose a "real" color.

My buddy “the_wolf_brigade” justified it well: Clear is like the chameleon of colours, so I wouldn’t say it’s cheating to increase the saturation of the clear tones… :D
