[title color=”dark” size=”h3″] Dramatic Skies [/title]
What an amazing sunset. From the moment I woke up this morning the sky was just amazing and I couldn’t miss the sunset. You would think that living in Hawaii there would always be these huge puffy clouds, bright skies, and amazing sunsets, but that hasn’t been the case for a while. However, so far, this year has been amazing for dramatic skies.
This shot is a view of one of my favorite places to go to relax and enjoy Hawaii.

[title color=”dark” size=”h3″] The cliche water drop image! [/title]
Of course I am going to shoot this image, which is not as easy at it looks. In doing this shot I didn’t want to completely re-setup what everyone else has done, but with a little twist.
I set up two flashes under a glass bowl of water focused upward through the bowl to where the drop would hit the surface. Placed a blue piece of paper in the background to help with reflecting a nice blue color into the water, contrasting with the red drops. Then with a red food coloring dropper, squeezed one droplet at a time. The hard part is timing the droplet just before it hit the water surface, or while it hit the surface.
