  • Water Drop

    This is one of my first attempts at water drops. Using a white bowl, food coloring, eye dropper and natural light. Shot with Nikon D5100 mounted on tripod, 18-105mm at 105mm, f/ 5.6, 1/1000 of a second, ISO 400. I would wait for a few seconds after adding the food coloring, then I would try to time my shot with the drop. It took a few attempts, but I figured out the timing pretty quickly. I plan on doing some more, with better props to make for a more interesting composition. Thanks for looking!

    The shot looks good but but it seems to be you have only focused on the center of the drop and the rest is on out of focus.

      I think it is an excellent effort -- and a very good result.

        Thank you for your input! I was using natural light, non-macro lens, and had to open the f stop all the way to get the picture (sun was setting fast). I will be experimenting with diffused light and direct light in the future, and perhaps try a flash as well. That way i can use the light to freeze the action and perhaps go to f/8 for better DOF.

            Wow nice shot I once tried the the rain drop from my window but it was kinda dark even with a flash or indoor house lighting, any suggestion how to solve that?

              I'd also like to feature some of the 'photos and descriptions of how you took them on the main DPS site (with a link back to your flickr account/photoblog to highlight more of your shots). So in submitting to this thread know that your shots and descriptions might be used in this way.
