Drink It Up

I have been doing some experiments for this month’s Click – Liquid Comfort. After a few unsatisfactory attempts, I had almost given up. ‘Better luck next time’, I said to myself. Looking at my failed experiments and taking pity on my plight, G agreed to help me. He gave me this fabulous idea and helped me take this shot.

A colorful non-alcoholic cider was our choice of liquid comfort. Served hot or cold, this versatile winter favourite can be enjoyed by adults and children alike.

Part Photography - Part Presentation, this shot was not as easy as I had thought it would be. Turns out, taking a high speed shot without flash in natural light is quite tricky. We had to use a combination of home-made light reflectors to achieve optimum lighting against a white background. Not to mention the awkward positions we had to be in to hold the frame in position.

Winning shot or not, I learned so much and had fun doing so, with my beloved G.

Drink It Up

Incidentally, this post is quite fitting in this moment of celebration. I just noticed that this is my 101st post. I have been blogging only for 8 months, but it sure does feel like a long time.

Congratulations on your blogging accomplishment! I love visiting your blog--am always in awe of your photos (esp. this one)--they are ALL gorgeous. I loved the look of the mor kali, too, and wondered how you served it. Is it a snack, on its own, or served alongside a meal? Either way, sounds delicious.
