Title • Photo Friday: Clean

I wasn’t too sure what to do for this week’s Photo Friday theme – Clean – so have gone with an image that captures some of the things that first came to mind – bright, vibrant colours, and water. And the reason I’ve gone for an indoor shot, or at least a major part of the reason, is that UK winters are normally quite a miserable time of year for photography, and the chances of finding anything outside that doesn’t look grey and washed out (and not overly clean) are rather small.

As for this shot: it’s water running into a glass fruit bowl, and is lit by a single diffused flash. One of the features on my flashgun (a Speedlite 420EX), that I overlooked when I got it, is a high speed sync mode; i.e. it will sync at any shutter speed. And while this image doesn’t really demonstrate that feature to great effect, it did help when taking this shot; i.e. I didn’t need to worry about freezing the movement of the water.

And finally: very little has been done to this image other than a slight increase in saturation, a Curves adjustment, and some sharpening.
