40/52 A Drop of Nature

I know I haven’t posted pictures for ages, and it was simply because even if I had a bit of time to do them, I didn’t like them enough to post them and also I started to work on a timelapse video of my city, Budapest, so that takes up a lot of time too.

This image was taken as a test for a commercial shoot I’d be doing later for a company making oils from herbs, but I’m not allowed to tell you more about that… just yet (I’m not sure I was allowed to tell you that much either). So anyway, the concept was to show how natural these products are and how they are made purely from herbs, so I decided that the oil would literally drip out of the rosemary.

The setup isn’t too complicated, the translucent background has a strobe behind it and it lights the entire scene up, plus I added a tiny softbox to light up the rosemary even more. I took several shots and later on merged them in GIMP, so this is a composite of 5 images, since there is no way to get a waterdrop (to be precise it is an oil drop) like this.

Settings for the shot:
Exposure: 1/160 sec
Aperture: F8
ISO: 100
Focal length: 50mm
Camera: Canon 40D + EF 50mm F1.8
