Those look crunchy! 160th shutter is high speed? I was expecting 1/2000th or something. It turned out awesome looking! Your produce must be organic :D

the shutter speed doesn't matter, I didn't freeze the motion with the shutter speed. I froze motion with the speed lights. thanks though!
I meant 1/2000.
I have never shot anything like this so i was curious and in a way asking about the technique. If you take the time to elaborate on how you set up this shot it would be fun to learn.

It was a set up with two speed lights and pocket wizards. One was flashing from the top left corner and the other one was flashing bottom right corner, I also had a white reflector under the tank to try and bounce some light up and illuminate the bottom of the peppers. both speed lights were set to 1/4 of the power in manual mode and i used a small diffuser for the flash on the bottom.

to focus i just held the peppers where i thought they were going to land, focused, and then switched it to manual focus so that the camera doesn't hunt for focus every time i drop the peppers. I used F/14 to give me some leeway since the peppers don't always land in the same spot. I used  ISO of 400 so that I don't have to use the higher power setting on the flash because they don't stop motion as well when they are set at a higher power settings.

hope this helps, let me know if you have other questions!

Great!

I have some technical questions, if I may...
Is it in fish tank?
Is it a water?
Do you pay attention on the water (assumption) temperature?

Yes, I did it in a 10 gallon fish tank. I filled it up with tap water, i don't think the temperature matters

you can see the metadata for each shot on if you follow the link to my flickr, but i was in between ISO 400 & 3200 most of the time.

castillophotodesign, where is the original? you got us used to it! :)


haha you are right. Here is the JPEG straight out of the camera


what kind of correction do you apply? Saturation, exposure...to the general picture or do you work on specific areas?


For the most part i make sure that there is proper contrast throughout the image and try to recover highlights and shadows with no detail. mostly, it depends on the image. I try to stay away from photoshop but sometimes the use of masks is necessary to get the most out of the image.

Not much wrong with this picture! I'm beginning to feel happier about my purchase already - now I just need to get out shooting with it!  ;D

Why wouldn't you be happy with your purchase? what is this camera lacking that you have a need for? I'm really happy with it. The camera feels a lot more natural in use  and the autofocus its just a breeze compared to the one in the mark II, this was the best improvement. the only thing I find that this camera is lacking is that there is not much of an improvement in IQ at low ISO compared to the mark II, But that doesn't mean the IQ aint nothing but gorgeous. I still get amazed at the amount on detail on photos and  the high ISO performance was greatly improved, including RAW files. is not perfect but this camera is exactly what was meant to be, an all-around full frame camera... a happy medium between IQ and Speed

Nice shot.   What were your camera/lens settings? 

I'm very curious to see some detail under the pier. Any possibility you could try new HDR option of 5D3?  Not necessarily a better choice, just a different one?

ISO 50, F/16, 0.5 Sec. With a 5D Mark III and a 24mm F1.4L II.

I took some shots that same day to try out the function. I am not a big fan of HDR but I will post the photo when I get home tonight

Hey! sorry I think I accidentally deleted the file, Ill make sure to give the HDR feature a try next time I go shooting and  i'll post it here so you can see it
