  • A wine glass is a type of glass stemware that is used to drink and taste wine. It is generally composed of three parts: the bowl, stem, and foot. Selection of a particular wine glass for a wine style is important, as the glass shape can influence its perception.

  • (The Wine Glass) The Wine Glass (Het glas wijn, also known as The Glass of Wine or Lady and Gentleman Drinking Wine) is a painting by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer that portrays a seated woman and a standing man drinking in an interior setting. The painting is in the Gemaldegalerie, Berlin.

Sense-i Photo 1 class, week 1: aperture & shutter

The kitchen sink photo was a good example of a fast shutter speed shot, and I was misled by the ease at which I got some interesting images there. This kind of photo is an entirely different deal, and actually does require hours in a studio with lights, flashes, arms, plus some fancy electronic devices - none of which I have. But I couldn't resist it, I knew as soon as Johann spelled out the assignment, I was going to try this. That's what I meant by "I know enough of the basics of photography to be a real danger to myself."

I put the water in the wine glass in order to have something of interest in the rest of the frame. With the biggest zoom I've got (85mm at present), a water drop splash is going to look pitifully small, and we aren't supposed to be cropping our images here. It worked out well because in a glass, you can see the bottom of the 'impact crater', though that wasn't intentional on my part.

Most of the 250+ shots were done at 1/250s, F/9 or F/11, ISO 100. Of them, I captured the 'crown' of the explosion 26 times. Most of the remaining shots were of a fairly pornographic water column structure, but more on that later.

This is a tough setup. After fumbling around for a while, I realized I needed to figure a way of getting the drop to hit the exact same spot every shot. I filled a plastic SM shopping bag with water and hung it from the handle of a rake that I had shoved under a heavy box at the top of a closet. When things were set up underneath it, I put a pin hole in the bottom.

The other problem is timing, obviously. I found myself paying no attention to the glass, instead watching the drop form on the bottom of the bag, and waiting a bit before triggering the shutter. I would get into a groove where 3 or 4 in a row would be crowns, but then quickly lose it.

Pretty soon, the glass (and sometimes the lens) would get messy with water splashes, so I'd stand up, put my head in the way of the drops, and clean things up. This photo is quite distracting in that regard. A purist would probably do this between each drop, but I'm not nearly there yet.

There is so much that can be improved in all of these shots, which is why I would have kept this off the board if four photos was a firm rule. The exposure feels dark to me. I should put in color, in the form of blurred out backgrounds or water coloring. Even the opacity of the fluid could be played with - I could use diluted paint or milk.

And things would probably be much cooler with a macro lens, so I don't have to fill up the frame with the wine glass, which with my lighting, isn't really doing much.

Getting a cable for my flash so I could position it somewhere else would probably help a lot too.

I also need to figure out how to clean up the room. The glass has many ugly reflections in it - some of which are me and the tripod. The glass was standing on a white towel over a dark floor, and its edges are easily visible in every shot. Yuck.

For most of the shots, I didn't even notice that the water surface wasn't level with the glass mouth - the glass wasn't vertical! Ugh. Lots of details to look after in this, but there's no excuse for not standing the glass upright.

I've uploaded the 6 best crown images, plus a column shot. Essentially, what happens in a water drop impact, the crown is sent up as the water drop's energy blasts through the surface of the water in the glass. It quickly collapses - much faster than gravity can pull it down (which makes the timing difficult), and the reaction is a column of water that gets sent up the middle. The column is present for a much longer time (which is why I have way more images of it than the crown), and when it reaches its peak can break into smaller drops, or the surface tension will bring the entire thing back down intact. Everything dies off fairly quickly after that.

The column is usually pretty phallic, but occasionally takes on a complex shape. I got one that really looks like a fist.

I Had To Take What She Was Offering To Me, I Took Her Fear From Her. Like A Dark, Velvet, Rich Wine, I Drank All Of Her Fear Till She Had No Fear Left Inside...

I Had To Take What She Was Offering To Me, I Took Her Fear From Her. Like A Dark, Velvet, Rich Wine, I Drank All Of Her Fear Till She Had No Fear Left Inside...

I smelt the terrible scent of a new-born vampire and the hairs on my back rose in attention. I raised my head from this form i was filling and i glanced around. A pair of blue eyes caught my attention, there was this waitress from the cafe. I again asked myself how she could stay untouched when she was marked with a vampire's scent? A vampire i had met tonight and wanted to kill. I grit my teeth as i thought that this girl could be nothing but his minion, why not? I glared at her, her make-up was down, she had been crying for a reason. Then i noticed the dirt on the knees of her jeans and then my eyes focused on the new claw marks on her arms where her pullover was ripped. It had to be a vampire's doing, another vampire. I looked back to my form and signed it as i heard the waitress approach to the desk and ask for the keys. Her voice was shaky, she was trembling. I kept my silence, handed the form to the receptionist then i followed her to her room. This wound on her arm had to be cleaned before it would affect her.

I saw her fiddling with the keys in her hand. Her hands were shaking and she could not open the door. She looked really desperate and scared, her eyes were filled with fear, a fear so strong, a fear i have never seen in my life. ''Need help?'' i asked her, taking the keys from her hand. She jumped back as an instinct and i opened her door for her. I took a step back to allow her walk in, she muttered me thanks and tried to walk in, walking so nervous and scared like a deer. I held her wrist where she was clawed, ''This needs to be cleaned before it affects you, this is not an animal's doing, is it?'' i asked with a whisper then her eyes found mine. I had read all of emotions and i drank her fear like a poisonous wine, dark, rich and velvet. Tears rushed her eyes as her hand caught my wrist. She was doing something bad, i could sense it, i just did not know what it was because her eyes kept mine as captives. Before i knew what was happening, we both fell on our knees. Then i understood what was happening. She was drowning the oxygen, she was pulling the air out of my lungs. My mouth opened desperately for more air but there was no air around us. She was building up a wall around us, a glass prison which lacked of oxygen. I felt the walls crackle, i heard the sound of the glass tightening. I grabbed her free arm and i shook her gently, ''I swear i will not hurt you,'' i whispered breathlessly and then she gasped. The glass shuddered and burst with her sobs. A wind licked my face when i breathed. Her hand dropped from mine as she kept apologizing and sobbing. ''It is allright, shhhhhh,'' i soothed her as i tried to catch my breath. I managed to pull myself on my feet and i slided my hands to her armpits, i pulled her up on her feet. Her body was just swollen and limp, she was still gasping for air and trying to hold the walls for support. ''It is gonna be fine, everything will be okay, i will not let any vampire touch you, no-one will hurt you,'' i whispered to her, helping her to get inside her room. She fisted her hands on my chest, pulling my sweatshirt. Her tears soaked my neck as she cried endless tears before she fell asleep on my chest.

I did not sleep that night, i stayed in her room and licked her wound clean. I even did not move. She had fallen asleep on my chest, her hair spread on my chest. She smelt like a flower and this flower cried silent tears of fear all night, even in her dream. When the light of the mornings sneaked under the curtains, i was sure of one thing: no vampire would and could be able to touch her. Because now i was her guardian. For now and forever.

NOTE: Carwen is a mutant who keeps 'stealing' other's abilities when she touches their skin-this is why she never likes to touch others. She can make the air lack of oxygen when she feels scared and in danger. o_OOO :)
