Left of Center

April 08, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

     Last night's shoot was what I call "left of center".  Often times I start out with specific photos in mind that I want to get, and I quickly find out that it's just not going to work!  For instance:  I can't capture a collision drop (where a drop falls on top of another drop), or I'll get strange reflections, or the timings not right, etc. 

     Rather than getting frustrated, I change tactics and go for something completely different.  The photo above is what I call a second phase  drop, which makes more of a "mountain" shape, than a "column".   I don't often try to get these.  Second phase is a later drop, that happens after a whole set has occurred:  drop, crown, column, ball, back down into ripples then to a second phase.  It's also smaller, and often slants to the left or right, rather than straight up and down.  This column is pointing "left of center". 

  For inspiration, I always ask myself, what would happen if... And I choose something different from what I normally do.  This photo is the result of putting together colors I wouldn't usually pair together.  I like the effect though, it works for me.

  Sometimes life is just a little "left of center!"  You never know what paths it will take you down...
