We made a splash in this live show as Karl demonstrated how to create art with water and a simple object.
Photographing a white on white image, Karl explained the technique for photographing water on a white background, and how you can enhance shape and form in the liquid. He also covered concepts like fast flash duration, what it means, and what speeds you need to freeze liquid shots like this. Additionally, Karl also explained the lighting setup he used to create the white background and light the water.
To end the show, Karl demonstrated the retouching process and techniques to comp together the final image.
