I really like today’s photo. It looks fabulous! Ian taught me a new technique using remote flash. I usually point flash toward the roof and let it bounce back to my object, which gives a nice and bright photo. This time, however, my object is a drink. Ian reckons using a remote flash and pointing it towards the camera through a diffuser at the back of the drink will have a better result for a translucent liquid. It is magical! I am really happy!
Ingredients: lime (1), lemon (1), mint (1 sprig), sugar (2 tablespoon), soda water.
What to do:
- Cut lemon in half, juice half of it and slice the other half for garnish. Do the same for the lime.
- Pour lemon and lime juice in a tall glass, add sugar and give it a good stir until all the sugar is dissolved. (This may take a while)
- Crush mint leaves and through them in the glass. Crush again using a small rolling pin.
- Add sliced lemon and lime and top up with chilled soda water.
- Ready to serve!
