I recently decided that I was missing a fish tank from my kit. I have seen lots of pictures I knew would benefit from the use of water and an upcoming shoot for a client gave me the incentive I needed to go out and get one.
As luck would have it, when I arrived at 'Pets at Home', they had an ex-display tank on special offer which was just the right size I was looking for. I got it home, filled it and over the next few days, got the images I needed for my client.
Then it was time to play!
Using the same lighting setup of a single ex-600rt at 1/8th power pointing into some white foamier camera left, and some silver card on the right-hand side of the tank, I set up a couple of small martini glasses in the tank so I could pour some coloured Monin syrups into them to see how it looked.
First I used Pink Grapefruit Syrup.
I then decided to add some Blue Curaçao syrup in to see what would happen.
I decided to keep pouring to see the results.
I'm really pleased with how they came out and I'll definitely have a play with this setup again.
