Water Drops Photographic Exercise - Who's tried it?

Discussion in 'Photography' started by Paul Michaels, Jun 28, 2007.

  1. I was looking at some of my previous water drop pictures and thinking
    of
    trying it again. My favorite technique is placing different items
    under the glass bowl to get some color in the pictures. I used things
    like dollars, magazines, and cloth.

    Here's some of mine - http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/Water-Drops/index.html

    I think I need a zoom lens so I can get a closer shot of the drop
    jumping in air. Right now I have a 28-80mm on my D100.

    Cheers,
    Paul

    they are some nice shots. my personal pref is the ones with the light below.
    i am still on film, so it costs me a bit to experiment.

    That's a zoom lens. Assuming you're using it at 80mm, and you're as
    close as it will let you focus, a closeup filter or extension tubes will
    let you get closer, but it might end up wet in which case you want a
    longer lens (not necessarily zoom) with macro focussing capability.
