056/365 Skittles

056/365 Skittles I really can't take any credit for this, I saw the technique in Digital SLR magazine. I changed the set-up slightly, the sweets are in a glass bowl with cling-film tightly stretched over the opening. If you had a nice piece of glass and more time you could achieve a much cleaner effect. I carefully dripped water onto the cling-film and used a flash bounced of some white craft foam to light the scene. I used manual focus to get the droplets as sharp as possible.

Wow...that's really cool. Well done. It also inspires some ideas...and makes me hungry. :)

On the credit issue, I can't say. Regardless, the result is wonderful and the focus spot on.

That is stunningly glorious and made me smile hard...which I desperately needed today.

What a picture...don't discount your artistic eye and ability. You are WAY to humble!

I feel compelled to add, that this one evoked strong emotion--almost as much as the barbed wire image--which is still my favorite. But this is a close second!!!!
