A WORLD OF DROPS

in curie •  last year 

One of my strengths in photography is macro photography, and within it, high-speed photography of water drops. Today I want to let you know some basic aspects of my experience in this photography field.

  • Basic equipment: camera, macro lens or magnifying lens, tripod, external flash or build in camera flash, dropper or a transfusion system.

  • Choose the background for your photo: be creative and fun, remember that the chosen image is what will give life to your drop.

  • Use a suitable container to contain the water, it must be full to the brim.

  • Due to the refraction of the light, the background should be placed inverted so that it is seen in a normal position inside the drop.

  • You must focus on the exact point where the drop of water will fall. You can use a pencil to facilitate the focus and remember to focus on manual mode.

  • Finally, you must have a lot of concentration to visually synchronize the fall of the drop with the manual shooting of the camera. My camera setting is: f / 11-16; 1/125 sec; ISO 200. External flash: 1/128.

Today I want to share with you my experience doing high speed photography of water drops. You do not need to have a large arsenal of equipment and accessories, only your camera and a lot of desire to learn. I really hope you enjoy this ppost and that it may be useful to encourage you to explore other fields within photography.
