    I can understand that. I lost my job a few months back, so I know how you feel.

    IIIKevin,
    I really like what you've done with the water drops. I'm gonna play around with that next. I picked up something similar from Bryan Peterson. Link to his video:
    Perfect Picture Video Tips and Tutorials

    Here's vegetable oil on a layer of water in a clear glass baking dish. Set above colorful wrapping paper. Manual focus on the veg. oil and use a fairly wide aperture to blur the wrapping paper(or whatever colorful item you've come up with). I used an SB-800 on manual with an SC-17 remote cord on my D200. The wavy pattern on the left side is an imperfection in the glass baking dish. Experiment!!!

    Thanks so much for this awesome tip, looks great, I was thinking in trying different kind of liquids not just water to see what happens. If I get good results I will post them here.

    thanks again

    Now THIS is a great tutorial... thanks for posting Kevin. I can't wait to try this. The possibilities are endless. I wonder if you put a portrait picture under the glass if you'd get reflections of the person's face in the droplets? I gotta try this...

    Wow I've missed a few replies here. Sorry guys. Thanks for all the compliments, I really appreciate it. Whatever picture you put under the glass will be reflected into the drops. I've had better luck with some than others. It really helps if the picture is good quality, It will make for a sharper, better looking results. I
