After wiping as much of the shaving cream off as possible, I tossed some water from a small cup I had used in the thinning process. As the water splashed against the glass, still lit by my modeling lamps, something caught my attention. It was just a glance, but it left me dangling about what I thought I saw. I triggered my camera on the next toss and this is what I caught.
I couldn't believe what I saw. The longer I looked at it, the more I laughed. This was not what I was trying to create. This was a total accident - and it was so much better than what I had in mind! I had to do more. For the next six months, I spent a lot of time throwing water at my camera. I discovered it was quite a fun sport. There's a lot of timing to catching the water as it hits. And it takes a lot of control. I think that was the best part because it made me focus. I thought it similar to my baseball career when I was a kid.
I've never done anything remotely similar to this. I find it interesting that the largest surge of inspiration in my life came when I decided I was going to just play in my studio. Yea, I'd call that a pretty good guidepost.
