Working on the grinder in my garage. Self timer in the dark.
Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands.I have been experimenting with "splash photography" and wanted to capture a photo of a hand hitting the water. I could find no volunteers in my house so I did it myself. I used a small plastic aquarium and 2 150 watt outdoor floodlights - both coming in from the sides.I used a piece of black velvet material for the background. The camera was on a tripod and I pushed the shutter with my right hand as my left hand was hitting the water. The original horizontal photo was then rotated to a vertical.
