    Water Drop Attempts

    Here are a few water drop attempts. It was too cold to do any outside shooting.

    You saw that video about using a colorful plate didn't you?

    They look like they need more light, although a good start. Where was your light? Take it off camera and tryout that wireless function on your flash!

    Btw, I have written a guide to photographing water drops.

    I did see something about a colorful bowl. I did have it off the camera. I had it to the left and lowered the power ti 1/16. I darkened them in PP to make the colors come through better. I will check out that link. I might try some more today.

    Thanks
