Mushroom splashing

On Thursday last week my new speedlight arrived… so, of course, I had to try it out. Yes, I decided to do some more water splash pictures, but with a two speedlight setup   Here are some of the images.

Nikon D3200 ISO 400, f/11, 1/200s. To the right of the tank was my Nikon SB-600 at 1/16 power (with “barn doors” attached). To the left was the new Neewer NW 660III set at 1/32 power (with a makeshift barn door!).

The two shots below show just one result of dropping one mushroom onto a floating one. The dropped mushroom fell from about a metre above the water surface.

And here is an accidental shot of me placing the floating mushroom!

I should add that I was in two minds about purchasing the Neewer speedlight, it was cheap, but I needed a second speedlight, so I took the plunge (sorry!)  I have to say that I am super-impressed with it. It’s well made and seems robust. The only thing I can find wrong with it is that it doesn’t retain settings following a power off.  There might be a setting to retain settings, but I’ve not found it yet. The instruction book, in Chinese and English is a joy. I’m not being rude here, I find the translation a delight… and it makes me work hard to make full sense of it 🙂

  1. I absolutely love your blog.. Pleasant colors & theme.

    Did you make this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my own site and want to find out where you got this from or just what the theme is named.
    Kudos!
