dissolving life by suzi9mm dissolving life by suzi9mm
i'm not sure about the title...it sounds slightly too romantisized perhaps, but blood is life and...

this ain't larger than life obviously, i got the idea from a funny video i saw. i was just explaining in my journal about how taking this seemed to be just impossible, all the forces of nature being against me, after every failed shot i had to empty the glass and wipe it clean and try again. the damn (fakeblood) dissolves really fast so it's a one time chance after dropping the knife there. it looks pretty weird actually, perhaps not how u expect a liquid to look... but it's pretty much like in the video i saw. also the blood looks really weird in parts, like pixelated or something, but nothing inside the glass has been touched. at all. i cleaned up the surrounding, from relections and stuff. i wish the glass was of better quality, some of the distortions in the edges esp. are dull, but all in all it's good quality, my trusted sigma 105mm does a good job.

sorry i can't offer you a bigger size, a big print shall look great though. also, as you've noticed i have to put my name on every photo nowadays to slow down ripping.

hope you enjoy this. i kinda like simple stuff like this. i hope your monitors are working esp. in the white extreme cos the details of the glass easily disappear. also forgive me if it appears in your watch again in case i decide to change the title.

you did a great job there. I'm curious to know how u set it up ? I mean the transparency of the glass looks just amazing, so what is actually in the background? Did u you use any light source to enhance the brightness ?
