I learned something about my camera this weekend. When set a 2 second timer, there are 8 beeps before the shutter opens. Important stuff.
It was my first ever sorta-like-a-studio shot with a high-tech backdrop of a casserole carrier and a desk lamp for my light. I had the flash on wireless coming from the side and books as my tripod. All on top of my kitchen table.
I sunk the strawberry into the glass to focus and then, with focus locked the timer set (I don't have a remote), I counted the beeps and dropped the strawberry into the water on eight. I learned this set up and technique from Bill Fortney on the Kelby Training website.
As you can imagine it took lots of drops and flops before I hit the 'sweet spot.' Hence, this is my week's Sweet Shot.
Big smile. :-)
