I tried to capture this carrot bottle using continuous lightning. Dark background is a little bit tricky. I could not use evaluative metering unless I metered my camera closely to the object. Partial metering and spot metering would be better for this shot. I was using my Canon EOS 40D and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens.
I am trying to apply high speed photography. In this still life photo season, my friend drop an ice cube into a glass of red syrup. Then, I allow my camera to shot several frames per second. I call it sewing machine effect photography because my camera will sound like sewing machine during photo shot. I am using my Canon EOS 40D and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens.
