    Yeah, was pretty bored over the weekend and i was able to set up a mini water drop area in my living room.

    I just want some C+C on this picture as out of the 400+ shots, this was the only semi decent one. to see what i can do to improve it next time etc...

    I shot this using my Tamron 90mm macro lens. I wanted to do something a little different than the usual glassbowl setup, so i used a bowl made of beach wood. I ahve tried to sharpen up the image in PS but i suck at using that program... :S

    any info/ideas for next weekend would be gratefull!

    my lighting was also pretty decent but it turned out dark (if i slowed the shutter speed for some reason they came out blurry) i had 2 desk lamps on each side lighting it from above, a flash on camera, and a flash at an angle... i think i need brighter side lamps...

    EXIF DATA:
    f/5.6
    iso 100
    1/4000 sec
    90mm
    exposure bias 0

    come to think of it after seeing the exif data 1/4000 might be a little overkill ... :S

    were they all as dark ? or did they fade off towards the end of the burst ?

    regarding sharpening. Change the image to lab color, select the lightness channel and use the unsharp mask. Then convert back to jpg. Works for me

    No problem. Gives you a ton of ideas, and a lot of the people talk about their various setups, tricks and gimmicks.
