Photography on manual: 2 – Splash

The first exercise we’ve been given is to capture a splash in a cup…

Tea splashing out of a mug on the kitchen floor

First splash. My kitchen is in a basement, so it’s a little bit dark. Even with the ISO jacked all the way up, this was the lightest I could get with the fastest possible shutter speed.

Second splash. So I went outside! Unfortunately my burst caught the splash a bit late.

Best splash. Finally got the hang of it. Though I wonder if the plant pot on the left spoils the composition.

Best splash, cropped. If I crop the pot out, but keep it landscape, I cut too much of the splash out. I’m not sure if square works either.
