    This is no where near as good as the drop photos Ive seen about this forums but I'm pleased because it meant I learnt how to set shutter speeds will try again another day and hopefully improve it somewhat :)

    Awesome! :thumbup:

    I've tried so hard to take water drop photos. But I just can't do it. :-( I'm too unco to hit the shutter button at the right time. hehe

    Can I suggest next time you use a lightly wider depth of field (smaller f number) that'll make sure more of the photo is in focus.

    Goodluck!!

    Wow! It looks like liquid copper, pretty neat :D! For a first attempt, you did great!!!

    I wouldn't even try those... My camera is too simple for such close shots :(.

    Can I suggest you think of water as a mirror. Shooting from that angle will reflect as if it is a mirror. So create a bright clean gradation behind the water and you will get some good results.

    Underneath the water should just be black. The surface of the water acts like a mirror. Whatever angle you're camera is looking at the water, that is the angle behind that you should light. How are you lighting it? There doesn't appear to be much of a light source. Also for focus, back up just a little and that will give you the depth of field you need, you can crop in after.
