Rock Bottom Spotlight

"Stoned Colours" by Wes Aldridge

This shot has no meaning at all. It was just a funny random thought that blossomed into a photograph. A little game of "can we make it work?" We did.

The container was a glass vase with glass or marble flat rocks in the bottom with a blue hue. I shot my 420EX Speedlite up from the bottom of the vase with blue and red colored gel filters on top of it. I shot at 1/200th of a second to eliminate almost all ambient light in the room at f/5.0, ISO 100. It looks almost as if the vase is floating in the air. The rim light on the top of the water abiscus is pretty neat as well.

Happy Valentines everyone.
