Don't Worry; Be Happy
As you can tell by most of my images that I enjoy the outdoors and wildlife, but when the winter "blahs" kick in I still try to improve my photography/creativity skills. I set up a table in my basement with my strobe and flash flanking on either side. I've had a few macro shots in mind for my Canon 100mm f/2.8L macro lens. For this image, I used a piece of glass,which I cleaned and sprayed with rainx. I then cleaned the glass again followed by a few spritzes of water. I tried photographing various objects below the glass to get this effect while my flashes were firing. They turned out okay but not exactly what I was looking for. I then had the idea of using my iPhone under the glass. Because the iPhone is backlit I didn't need to use my flash. I had my camera on a tripod so I could get by with a slower shutter speed and was able to get this image. I plan to try more images like this using our iPad as well. It is through playing around with my camera and using the tools I own to come up with images like the one above. I hope you enjoyed it and learned a little. Feel free to find this image in my gallery to explore my other settings and post your comments and questions.
