Shooting water drops
Recently got inspired to shoot some water drops again thanks to http://www.strobist.blogspot.com/
I set up a little black baking tray with water, made a background to bounce light off in Photoshop then printed it out. Strapped on the 50mm with some extension tubes to allow me to get in close for some macro capability and set up my new wireless flash triggers. Ended up with some pretty cool shots but still need lots of practice. Here are just a few shots from the experiment.
This shot obviously was not water dropping but a still life macro shot of a couple of tiny water drops on a CD.
And this is my set up for shooting the water drops.
This shot kind of takes away the magic and mystery of the water drops but still interesting I think. Click for a larger shot with descriptions.
As usual come see more water drop shots I did on Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/peteleongphotography/sets/72157619057919061/
An Australian photographer living on beautiful Okinawa island. I specialize in wedding photography, and shoot literally hundreds of weddings each year with my company Watabe Wedding. But I love to shoot a wide variety of subjects and also love teaching photography. I'm quite a gadget geek love to get the latest tech toys. When I'm not shooting weddings you'll find me practicing my craft in other ways, photographing my kids, Okinawa's amazing seascapes or listening to various photography podcasts.
