Splash Photography

On this site you will find some splash photography, now everyone loves splash because you are seeing something that is normally to fast for you to see. People find it fascinating and you will never see 2 images exactly the same. I have scoured about to find a video that will teach you an easy way to have a go.

So get out your paint and camera and have a go, don’t forget the raincoat 🙂


Now you have learned this now is the time to start taking the plunge.

This image was done with a large custom made acrylic tray, 1 spotlight was pointed up from the floor to the bottom of the tray to give a bright light in the centre with a blue coloured gel over the flash. There is another spot light over the top this is a broncolor pin spot, this was put there to light up the front of the bottle. Another spot was added to the front to light up the base of the bottle as it was showing very dark. Then there was a spot either side of the bottle with soft boxes attached to smooth out the light on the sides of the bottle.

I then took about 150 photographs and selected the best bottle shot and the best splashes from the shoot and blended them together in photoshop. When in photoshop I removed any water droplets from the front of the bottle, added contrast and a circular blue gradient to make the blue darker. The writing on the bottle was boosted by repainting the areas around the text to make it stand out. All done in a measly 8 hours, just to get this shot, but I think it was worth it in the long run.
