Things were a bit lazy at the Legg house yesterday so I played around taking some shots of splashing liquids. This photo was made by capturing a drop of milk just after it hit a vessel of coffee. I’m amazed at how the drop bounced off of the surface of the coffee to form a tower supporting the milk orb .
The lighting and exposure on this shot were a bit tricky and, to be honest, I’m not overly pleased with the result. The milk drop is a bit blurry and the overall shot had quite a bit of digital noise (which I reduced in PhotoShop). I will have to try this again at a later date with a more powerful strobe.
I do think the sphere of milk is pretty cool, though.
