orange | some OCF fun

Sorry grandma - next post will be of the boys :)

I got some OCF (off camera flash) equipment for Christmas and have been having fun playing with it and my macro lens. First up is an orange. Reminds me of summer.

Here's the pull back shot. The flash was camera left and I bounced it off of the white side of a snapple box. It's also the same pull back for the most part for the next OCF experiement.

I wanted to freeze motion. So using the same orange I dropped some slices into a glass of beer. It took a lot of trial and error as I was home by myself and was using the timer and hoping I got it right. There was a lot of going back and forth from the camera to my set up. I'm really happy with the way the first one came out. Next time I'll have to remember to not wear pink pajama pants!

They came out great...I had to have my husband pour cranberry drops into a glass to get shots, I can't imagine how hard it would have been with a timer. Good job.
