    So I have been reading a thousand different articles on how to photograph these little beads of liquid frustration, but everyone has a different technique. I found the one thing that is constant is the amount of light you need, so I winged it and they didn't come out too badly!

    Great sharpness. Did you use the 50mm lens for this?

    I set up a small glass on the table full of water, poked a hole in a Pepsi bottle for the water to drop from, set up a normal light bulb right above the water, and also used my on board flash. ISO was at 320 I think and shutter speed was 1/200. For the colors I used microfiber towels under and behind the glass. :D

    I tried with a 50mm but it just wasn't working so I switched to my 18-55mm at 55mm. The tip of the lens is about 8 inches from the glass

    I tried my Sigma 70-300mm because it has a macro function but it really didn't do much for me.
