One fun digital photography challenge for those with a little time on their hands (particularly on a lazy long weekend as I know many of you are on) is photographing Water Drops.
OK – so there are thousands of these on Flickr and some might say they are a little cliche – but I think they are a fun subject but also present photographers with enough of a challenge that they’ll learn something while photographing them. They are also an ideal subject for those photographers stuck inside on a cold rainy day.
I was planning on writing a full tutorial on the topic of photographing water drops but there are some good examples of this type of photography accompanied by some instructions on how the shots were taken in our forums.
Start with this Aperthetic’s description of their technique.
Lastly – check out this discussion forum at Flickr for lots more advice on photographing water drops.
