f8, ISO 100, 1/200sec, flash light from the left.

Gear used: Canon 400D, Canon MPE65mm macro, 580EX2+lumiquest softbox

Look at the larger and see what I captured that I did not expect in the waterdrop.

An early shot with my MPE65mm, I finally managed to get it out into the field for a short test and I have to say I quickly got sick of my tripod. I just found it so hard to focus the shot (I must have destroyed at least 5 waterdrops in trying) and get the whole rig into a suitable position - so in the end I gave up and went for handheld. A hard thing to do with only my 580 flash and an offcamera flash cord which limited me to shooting on the ground where I could lean the flash against something (normally the ground which will explain why its a slightly muddy flash now). I have gained a new respect for the difficulty of such highmagnification shooting and a new lust for those twinflash lights!

Any comments/crits welcome - thank you

Nice 1st attempt at water drops Over. Tripod is no good for field work, too bulky. If you want a stable platform for water drops a bean bag might be a better bet, easier to position and carry.
