Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Dec 11, 2012, 11:23 AM

Water drops

Trying something new. I created these inside the house using table top photo lighting, pine boughs, different flowers, and a spray bottle. (and dish towel mats) I worked on replicating a dew drop first...or as close as possible. Then placement of the object (flower). I'm going to do some more inside shots before heading out to the 'wild' for water drop shots. I want to be comfortable with the process before I attempt focus stacking.

5. Amazing!

I like # 6, because the reflection(?) of the flowers is very clear, while the real flowers are sort of out of focus.

Please excuse my obvious lack of technical knowledge of photography.

6. Thank you, Cracklin Charlie.

That's OK on the technical terms - I'm still working on those myself.

15. A series to be very proud of! I'm a fan of your work and eye anyway

and that just got elevated!

I now cannot WAIT for what you will enter for "reflections". Some of these IMO would steal the prize.

16. Thanks, Mira.



I keep changing my mind about what to enter. I'll probably do what I almost always do and let my better half choose for me.
