A few days ago, I wrote about a water drop experiment and showed the resulting images . If you’re interested in playing with water drop photography, read this link – it’ll explain one way it can be done. … Since my images turned out rather more, ah, abstract as opposed to nice and crisp, I redid the experiment.
Nikon D90, 105mm focal length, 1/125 sec at f/5.6, ISO 3200, no flash There’s a tutorial over at Digital Photography School, which is, by the way, a cool photographic website, on water droplet photography . … Instead of using a coloured plate below a glass dish for color and a piece of coloured paper for the background, my setup is this: I put my cutting board over the sink, a glass pie plate on the cutting board, and added food colouring to the water in the pie plate so I wouldn’t have to worry about a nonexistent coloured plate. … It was difficult to get the water drops in focus – my kitchen is not very bright, much to my dismay. 🙂 On the other hand, it was enough fun that this is something I’ll definitely do again. 😀 It’ll be interesting to see how future experiments end up.
These are pictures of flowering grass, a fairly common plant, yeah? I played around with tints, colours, and so on to see what kind of effects I’d get and what could be created out of a common plant. … What would you do if you were playing with these images?
But mostly play. 🙂 I set myself on the dining room table with a foil-covered cake tray for the base and a lamp I use for sewing on the left. … You know, with a kid’s bubble thingie that we keep for the nieces and nephews to play with. 😀 Hey, I love blowing bubbles anyway, so for me, this was just an excuse… I have a few other things I want to do with blowing bubbles, but that’ll be another day…
