New 'V' Old
Updated: Sep 1, 2022
Challenge: Choose a photo from the past and re-create it.
This was my first real attempt at 'water splash' photography back in 2014.
Being on my own I had to figure out the best way of throwing the orange whilst taking the picture. First like a fool I tried throwing from behind the camera, then quickly upgraded to using a trigger.
The Canon 650D has a self timer continuous mode, which enables you to take up to 10 photo burst. This i found extremely helpful back then. The lens I was using for this was the Canon Macro 60mm and one K-180A stand light. ISO 400 | F/5.6 | 1/400
So my 2020 attempt looks like this.
The process was a little different, this time using a Canon 7D MKII (there is no self timer continuous mode) and also a wide angle lens.
This allowed me to have the camera close enough to be able to drop the nectarine and press the shutter button at the same time.
ISO 1000 | F/2.8 | 1/2000
Things i did differently
Using two pieces of laminate floor raised up on boxes, gave me a better base than just having a bowl on the floor.
Allowing more light into my camera.
Used the High Continuous Speed Mode
Of course having slightly better camera and lens helps to.
