  • Wine glass with drops of water - no extra equipment

    Edit: Wine glass.

    My photography group assignment for this month was shoot a glass of water in black and white. This is what I came up with, it was really easy to do. I'm sure you could all figure it out but this is how I took it.

    This was shot in my studio (aka my bathtub). I got a wine glass and had an assistant hold it upside down. I turned my shower on low so there was a constant drip of water from the shower head. I used the on camera flash to stop the motion and create the shadow. I had the camera set to Manuel; ISO 200, Aperture f4.5, Shutter 1/250. In post I rotated the image until the glass was right side up then converted the image to black and white.

    This was my first attempt, it was so easy I might try more. If you try it please feel free to post your images here.



    Here one straight out of the camera. It is one of the earlier attempts so the finger are really noticeable. the shower is not spraying, it is dripping over her hand onto the stem.

      I believe what you mean is that you had a shower drip into the wine glass and with the impact of the drop it created such an interesting effect. Amazing shot!

        That's a very creative idea! I wonder what it would look like with actual wine (something cheap obviously) , or just colored water.

        asp7yxia,...What is it that you dont understand? Maybe we can word it differently so that it makes sense to ya.

          No, thats the water running off the sides of the glass. The glass was held upside down, the water is running off the sides, then its been flipped right side up to make it look as if its going up, and not down.

            I tried to rewrite the post to be clearer, it was late - I had switched to the hard stuff by then . The glass was shot upside down so the water is dripping off the glass.

            Yes - exactly!

            I'll add an image to the original post to show what one of the outtakes look like.

            It wouldn't work because there is water running down the stem and all over the glass, you just don't really notice it. If it were wine or colored liquid it would show.

                      Great Idea!

                      This is terrific. I totally get what you did and love what you did after wards, by turning the shit upside-down. We just had a "water" assignment in my photog class and I found it the most challenging to date. Nice work!

                            Wow! You made this sound so simple. But the effect is terrific! So I gave it a shot too. And loved every moment of it, though I had to reposition myself several times to get the offending shadows off the frame. And luckily for me, today my wife didnt tire of my requests for "one more!" Thanks for a delightful tutorial. Here is mine:Jaam Chhalke
