Additional Notes

"See In A New Way with Lensbaby": I set up a small table with a pyrex dish on it, filled with water. I then took a dropper and dropped a few drops while shooting off the camera and slave flash (set up on right). The camera was a Nikon D300 with a (internal) zoom lens, zoomed in to 200mm. After some test shots, I decided to add some color to give the photo a better effect. I then added a red gel over a strobe set up behind the water and also put a red (with some yellow) design card underneath the pyrex dish. After a few hundred shots with different colors, angles and drops, I decided to print this one for a portfolio project.
