Who's crying now !

Who's crying now !, originally uploaded by It's life Jim.....
Never any point in crying over spilt milk.

Using flash photography can be fun at times.... but messy.
  • Position the flash/strobe close to the subject - this makes sure the subject is well lit, but the background remains in darkness. 
  • Use a high f-stop in order to get a deep depth of field so that the front and back of the milk splash both in focus
  • Use the highest shutter speed available that syncs with your strobe, although no great issue if this is only 1/60th second
  • The milk will appear frozen in place as the actual flash duration is typically about 1/1000th of a second.
  • You will probably have to repeat multiple times to get the timing coordinated between the splash happening and operating your camera.
