I took this picture at a local Applebees and I was impressed with how the beer matched the color of the table so I hovered above and snapped a few pictures and this one came out the best. I used a Nikon D90 camera with a 50mm lens. The ISO was on auto

My camera is a Canon EOS 50D with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM. I shot this at f/5.0, 1/400 and ISO 100. The color was easy here in Iraq; there's only one. We pulled up in our vehicle, shot the photo from an open window and got out of there. The subject used to be a Ford explorer that was hit by an IED (roadside bomb).

I used a Canon Rebel XT to shoot a box of jars I have. Jars are clear, and so the monotone colour being the brown box, I positioned my camera on a tripod over the box and let used a remote to avoid shake. No processing was done to the photo aside from cropping the wallpaper then resizing the 800px image.

I call this shot "steel giz". I used ¼-20 threaded steel rods with ¼-20 nuts to spell out the "GIZ". My first shot were done on a steel workbench to keep the colors in the back ground the same but lacked some "pop". So I hit upon the idea to use aluminum foil as the background and this not only added some "pop" but a nice non-Photoshoped mirrored effect below the nuts. In fact the only shopping I did besides the resizing, was cooling down the WB a bit and adding some sharpening.

A cardboard box with the head of the lamp facing up.
A red piece of paper was then used to cover the lamp to make the light red.
A clear folder with white paper inserted was placed on top of the box to diffuse the light as much as possible.
A glass plate was then placed on top of the folder, the plate was then filled with Schweppes Raspberry Flavour soda and two tablespoons of liquid detergent.
A small straw was then used to blow bubbles.

I poured some extra coffee I had into a green bowl and violently mixed in some dish soap and water to make it a bit more interesting/bubbly. I then placed this bowl in front of my TV. I put on a green theme on my PS3 dashboard and set my camera on a tripod slightly over the bowl it to capture the green light emitting from the screen and took a long exposure with the TV as the only light. The green was slightly enhanced
The coffee actually smelled pretty good. I regretfully did not drink it.
