110408_160511_16424To43 Fizzzzzz, or Adventures In A Tent, Part I (Fri 08 Apr)

At Home, Sydney, NSW

My first attempts at playing around with my new light tent, and at shooting some pouring liquids with the macro lens into the bargain.

The latter was an interesting exercise. No, I need to use unrefrigerated liquids because the condensation on the glass is too pronounced. No, I need a little more DOF. No, if I stop down to get more DOF then I slow down the shutter too much and I need at least 1/100th to prevent the motion blur. No, if I crank the ISO then I get too much graininess.

Other lessons learnt: I need to avoid having a light source behind me when using the tent since it defeats the purpose of the exercise, when I'm shooting a sequence lock the naffing exposure, especially if I want to stitch them together (which to be fair, is something that I only thought of doing a few minutes ago), and I still need to find a reliable source of external lighting. I was using light coming in through the window to the side which was too uneven.

But hey, I got a glass of Pepsi out of it so it's not all bad.
