Challenge: Recipe (Beverage) (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: My Garage lol
Date: Jul 14, 2008
Aperture: F11
ISO: 100
Shutter: 34 seconds
Galleries: Abstract, Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Jul 14, 2008

In a shaker combine
4oz of Strawberry Daiquiri mix
1.5oz of Tequila
1.5oz of water
Juice of 1/4 of a lime
Shake well with 1/2 cup of ice
Add a small chunk of dry ice for effect
Pour, Drink and repeat :)

This one was a riot to create, I hope it does ok.
I only have 1 flash so I had to paint with light of sorts by setting everything up in my dark garage. tape a sample coloured gel to either side of my flash so I could just flip them over at will. With the lights off, drop dry ice in and open shutter. Hit the back right side of the glass with the green filter then flip to the other filter and stumble in the dark to the other side and manually trigger the flash again and finally using no filters hit it a 3rd time from above, close shutter and check drink...

A new PB! Congrats! Fun colors and I love the wisps of cool stuff. Your comment "this one was a riot to create" makes me laugh. So how many of these did you have to drink before you got it right then? lol
