    Hey everyone,
    have you ever tried to take pictures through waterdrops
    or any other kind of fluid? I was experimenting with
    water, oil and honey this week trying to get the best shot
    possible. Maybe clycerin would have also been an option
    (but I had none...^^). I really like the results you can
    achieve when you get really close. In the following video,
    I share some tips and techniques how to take cool
    photos using droplets. If you have taken some pictures
    already, please share them with us:)
