I wanted to make water the main and only subject of my submission. This is a fairly simple picture but my goal was to make it as simple as possible.
Water is one of the four classical elements that compose our universe. It can be found almost anywhere but I wanted to freeze the motion for one moment, stop the time and see something that it's usually not seen during the everyday life.
That's why I've composed this set of three images, expressing three different moods and freezing three similar moments. My message is that even a simple water drop splash has its characteristics. Some things are similar, but none of them is equal. I think that this must be always kept in mind, especially in the globalized world of today, where everyone dresses alike, everyone does the same things and buy the same objects.
Socrates said "Know Thyself" and that's the message I want my picture to express. Know your characteristics and know your differences.
I did it using a transparent surface with some water on it. Under it I set a Yongnuo 560EX flash attached to a radio trigger.
The camera I used was a Canon 600D with a 50mm f1.8.
