    Some water droplet photos using a new technique that I learn from an awesome tutorial thanks to The Strobist!

    I used my Nikkor 18-105mm, I had it at about 90mm I believe, and I had my SB-600 pointed at the paper that I had as a backdrop so that the colors would reflect in the water like the tutorial said to. Worked pretty well.

    Here is a link to the video...

    Strobist: How to Photograph Water Drops with One Speedlight

    I pretty much did what he did, printed out some tie dye patterns for the background.

    Thank you! The video was very helpful and the set up was actually quite easy. The only thing I didn't have was the tripod which made things far more difficult...as soon as I get a tripod I am sure I can get much better ones.
