This is water droplet photo. I took it without flash. I utilize sun available light. Set the camera shutter speed high and the ISO high, then water droplet will freeze.
This is picture of water droplet using Speedlite 580 EXII and blue gel. This time I use different timing to catch both water droplet and its spark. The pattern is quite interesting and different than previous attempt.
This is water droplet photo. This time I used Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash for Canon EOS Digital SLR Cameras and blue gel. Since I used flash, I can use ISO 100 to minimize grain noise on the picture. Looking at the result, I think I prefer to use flash and blue gel for water droplet photo. In this photo, I put my camera level higher than the water. Next shoot, I will try to put my camera on the same level with the water.
This is water droplet photo. After taking the photo without flash in previous posting, this time I am using flash. Also, I set the color in black and white. I think this one is better. 🙂
During this water droplet shooting, I put my focus on top of the splash. I think much better. However, I don’t like the grainy noise because of high ISO. In this shoot I use available light without flash. Next shoot I will use flash lighting.
I tried to shot water droplet. I have to set Shutter speed high to make freeze effect. Without flash, I have to balance light exposure level in the middle or 0. Therefore, I have to set at the H ISO. As a result the picture has grainy effect everywhere.
These pictures are my inspiration to spend all off my time in this weekend for shooting water droplet. What do you think? Markus Reugels is the master of “liquid art”. Check his website http://www.markusreugels.de/liquidart 🙂
