I was reading an article over at digital-photography-school.com on shooting water droplets and decided to give it a try.
Out of about 90 shots or so (including lighting tests), I ended up with 6. Here are two of my favorites:
Here’s the lovely lighting setup I had:
Two upside-down bowls in the sink on top of each other. I filled the the top white one with water to the top. Nikon D70 with 18-70mm on a tripod. SB600 Speedlight about 15cm camera left and triggered via Commander (i.e remote trigger). Water dripped down through a latex glove that I poked a hole in and suspended from the kitchen cabinet using Dunstan’s cat leash.
On a somewhat related note, I may have some exciting news tomorrow. Be sure to check back for that!0
