Midnight Cocktail

by Bill Funk

<span class="small">I actually shot a pellet through the glass, in front of a black paper background, with the camera on timer mode. A home-made switch made with 2 sheets of metal foil triggered the flash when the pellet hit it through the glass, and so the action was frozen. Destroyed 3 glasses to make sure I got at least one good picture, and spent an hour cleaning up the kitchen. The lightning, from a thunderstorm taken out the bedroom window, was added with Photoshop as was the flashpoint above the pepper.</span>

    Ah the pain we artists got through to get that elusive shot. Well done Bill, it's a very effective piece. Shame about the kitchen though. #5 from me

    Hi again Heather, and thanks for the encouragement. This picture took lots of time to set up and execute so it's really cool to get the feedback!

    It's a cinch Reggie, all you need is a pellet gun, a foil switch (see above), a pretty glass, and reasonable aim. And a pair of goggles is useful. Thanx for being the first to comment on this-one of my very favs! BB
