water is wonderful.
My daughter Sóley and her fishes.
Shot at home in the living room.
Thanks to superkev
for selecting this photo as a DD.
The fish bowl is placed on a thick glass window which is placed between two loudspeakers. Between the fish bowl and the glass is white paper. Underneath the fish bowl is a halogen lamp.
This was shot in the afternoon so it was bright outside as can be seen by the reflections in the fish bowl from a window on the right. I had to lay on the floor to get the low viewpoint and I used a tripod for the camera.
Her body is not visible through the fish bowl because of the light coming from below. The water is clean and fresh as can be seen by the air bubbles on the plastic plants.
I did some more shots but the expression on her face and the placement of the fishes were not as good. I also tried blocking the light so it would not light up the wall behind and that was better.
