Trying to get a great splash shot like ones I’ve seen. Well, could have done better if I had a lot more patience, and probably had I used something thicker like cream rather than mixing water, milk, red food dye, orange juice, and V-8 juice, i.e., whatever was in the refrigerator.
Also, it was one of my first times using a flash, so I was guessing on the angle and exposure. I was also guessing a bit on the focus. And I needed one more set of hands. And a better way to drop the liquid – I tried a feeble turkey baster without much success, and then moved to pouring slowly from a glass measuring cup – it would have been better if I had been able to drop the liquid from on high, and if I had waited between attempts for the frothy bubbles to disappear.
