365 project - Day 204 - Water Tension

Day 204

Tonight I wanted to try something a little different, so I started playing with water tension. The hardest part was finding an object that would actually sit on top of the water surface and not sink. After trying with different glasses I found the ones with the wider tops were easier to put the objects in them. As for objects paper clips worked the best. I set up the flash on a pocket wizard set at 1/8th power 2½ feet away from the glass at the camera left. I also used a LED flashlight to illuminate the paper clip from the camera right about 4" from glass. To get the green, I put a green Frisbee to the subjects right. This was a fun setup tonight, I like how the paperclip is indented in the water.
