Love this Heather!!!!! Amazing clarity and the blue bg sets it off! This is such a hard shot to do and you have nailed it!!!! Great work!


Heather K. McFarland 2/28/2006 1:55:15 PM

Thanks for your kind comments folks. Yes Renee...this was much harder to do than I thought. Especially when your trying to do it yourself...without lights which I don't have.

I had to drop the orange and fire with the remote sync cord and try to time everything right. And the orange kept flipping to the back side so you didn't see the front...LOL...and I splashed water all over my table!! Took about 300 tries to get two good ones!! #2480283

Nadya Johnson 2/28/2006 2:26:23 PM

To borrow from the tv show, "Absolutely Fabulous!!!!" This is wonderful! What a shot! I can well imagine that it took 300 tries and I hate to think of the comments I might have made, had I tried it myself! But it was well worth the effort, for sure! Wonderful! #2480407

Melissa G. Meiselman 2/28/2006 4:17:28 PM

This is a really terrific shot. I know you must have worked hard to get it just right. I believe you had to take 300 photos to get it just right. I wonder...when you are working with water, how do you prevent your camera from getting wet? #2480741
