Neptune was the Roman god of the seas, equated to Poseidon (Greek) and Nechtan (Celtic), amongst others. I'd have chosen one of the others, but Neptune has vaguely stellar undertones and I am all for that. Also relevant is the texture of the surface I was dropping water on to; it looks like Space.
Another image taken for a college assignment. I went through scores of attempts before nailing this shot; and even then, it's not as clear as I would like it to be. Still, it's a lot better than anything else I produced in the same (and previous) sessions.
Heh, I was actually quite lucky with this one but yes, it can be a particularly time-consuming and frustrating process. Thank you, once again.
Thank-you kindly. This is one of those that came out a lot better with a little bit of attention; the raw image betrayed the extremely lo-fi aesthetics behind this image, heh.
Amazing in every aspect !
Heh, I can see how it would remind you of ink. It is just tap-water, though.
Well, thank-you for that; I know that lots of people refuse to disclose information on how they captured their shots and while that may help to retain a sense of mystery around their work it does sort-of degrade their merits as a person, especially if the person asking is quite clearly someone just starting out in the field and not exactly a rival. There shouldn't be rivalry in such actions anyway, art's not a sport.
Anyway, yeah, this was a nightmare to capture. Hahah. Both this and my Hydragyros deviation were achived after a collective taking of around 300 shots. My flash was playing up on the day so syncing everything one-handed was a nightmare.
Heh, yeah, I am finding the course pretty useful. Seeing as I had just bought an SLR camera I had no clue about how to use it, while now I have a vague idea about what around half of the buttons do. Hah.
Thank-you for your words, and for adding this to your favourites.
It took me hours to capture it at the right moment, but I'm fairly content with how it came out. Thank-you muchly for taking the time to comment.
Mm, yes, you would probably capture some great moments with an improved camera. I'm still learning how to use this one; and boyo, did it clear out my funds when I bought it. :B
A print request? D:
Thankyou for that, and for adding this account to your deviantwatch. I appreciate it muchly.
