    I'm sure people are tired of seeing water drops, but i never get tired of them haha. Here is a few shots of my second attempt to take water droplets. This time i used an off camera flash and gels bounced off a white backdrop and last time i tried to hand hold the dropper but I was smart enough to put it on a stand. Let me know what you think

    Thanks, i didn't do it on a mirror actually. I had the water in a shallow black cookie sheet. The light was basically level with the water which i think made it more reflective

    Thanks everyone, im somewhat bummed though because i realized after taking my pictures that i was in ISO 800 from a previous shoot and a ISO 200 would have made things a little more crisp but owell i hid the noise as best as possible
