Challenge: Product Shot (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Location: Home studio

Aperture: F 5
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/40

Date Uploaded: Sep 7, 2008

I took this pic at my house in my home studio. I put the cologne in a fish tank half full of water with a white back drop. I then back lit the tank with 2 small desk lamps. I took a turkey baster and dropped water from the top after attaching fishing line wire to the cologne bottle so I could hold the bottle and baster at the same time. I then tried many different shutter speeds, ISO's until I finally got the shot I wanted. I took about 100 frames to get it just right. Then I used Photoshop CS3 to crop, adjust hue/sats and colorize the image to show the blue and bring out the water and bubbles. Hope you all like it!!

I like the attempt at one of those professional water splash shot. Almost there, just a touch on the blurry side.

Hey, that is my cologne! I think it looks better with a green treatment instead of blue though, and mine has a nice frosted bottle that would have given some great ideas...

Nice shot, it does seem to be missing a bit of punch .. maybe too much blue here
