super cool shot.
awesome water drop capture!!
Love the relections in the top droplets! xxx
Very nice. Water drops are something I hope to try and do this winter.
Hello, Nice shot! I try to do something similar, but I have some challenges with light and lens settings. Could you tell what flash and lens you have used? Where the flash was positioned and what speed. What aperture you have used and what ISO speed. I ask these because I always get some blur on some part of the picture. It can be motion blur or shallow DOF depending on the setup I try.
Great shot and do tell!!!!
Awesome shot! It makes me want to buy a new camera.
Excellent timing on the shot.
One suggestion would be (assuming you're using a tripod) to drop your elevation slightly to get a bit more level with the water surface. It will kill the ripple effect, but it's just something to try. You can get an idea of what I mean if you click here.
Thanks for sharing.
That's awesome! kundalini, that link is really interesting too.
Hello, I have made some water drop photos recently:
My setup was the following: Canon D60, ISO 200, 90-300mm lens with +1 closeup filter, aperture f13, two flashes. The camera was set to manual focus and bulb mode. The trigger and the flashes were controlled by my custom made controller. The speed of the flashes were around 1/10000s. They were both directed to the background. I'm quite satisfied with this shot but it could be even better. I have rather shallow DOF. It can be because of the closeup filter and/or the aperture settings or pure lens. If someone ever shot a crisp clear water drop, I would be really interested in his/her camera and lens settings.
