4/365 Party Duck

4/365 (Sunday January 16, 2011) Rubber Duck not to be confused with the Peking Duck my wife craves currently. You dont know how hard it is to get this kind of thing right, i have been busy for an hour! as my back hurts I gave up after an hour, need to think about getting my back back in shape first!
setup:1 blue gelled flash below scrim under tankfish tank on its side, duck on lower glass, drops on upper glass1 umbrella with flash100 MM Canon Macro Lens @ F32, 1/200 shutter speed3200 ISO

dont be fooled the drops are NOT water, its glycerin as water is too thin and pulled down by gravity, the water drops thus dont work well as lenses. use pure glycerin instead and work fast as also glycerin gets pulled flat by gravity and this just doesn’t aid you.
shot rubber duckies today due to DPC but failed to realize that you have to shoot 1 duck with vegetables, something red and a string in the shot…….so bummer, i wont join the DPC challenge!

4/365 out take, not so party duck!
