Drip, Drip...

By roelf  
At last I decided to try it. The combination was just right, a miserable late Saturday afternoon and not a great deal to do. I had just read Jonah Surkes tutorial on capturing water drops and decided to have a go my self. Well after about 250 shots at different settings and angles I eventually achieved a reasonable photo, (well I hope so !). But boy is it hard work when you don't have a macro lense or extra lighting.
Diferent variations can be seen and if you look at number 4 you can se my expensive studio setup !Wink

F8 at 1/30th in manual mode at iso 400 with flash in wireless remote mode slaved from the Camera buit in flash
ENJOY ! and please please comment if you see fit

Many thanks

My favourite is number 3 - a beautiful shape and I like the reflections in the ripples.

Thanks for sharing the background images. It's good to see how people attempt this type of photography. Mine was done in the kitchen sink in the washing up bowl with drips controlled direct from the tap. I like the idea of a flatter dish.
