Freezing water droplets.
Its very easy to shoot some awesome water drop photographs.
Though there are different methods to capture some beautiful photographs of water splashes created by falling drops, the one I have used is mentioned below.
Fill the box with water completely & focus your lens at water level & do not forget to switch your camera from auto focus to manual focus mode after focusing.
Shooting using a shutter/cable release or by setting self timer is better as it will mitigate the risk of camera shake while pressing the shutter.
Shoot at a smaller F stop to get the maximum depth of field, I shot at F11.
Make sure your entire setup is on a table top or a surface close to a wall or a backdrop where you will bounce the light from.
Fill your syringe with liquid & you are ready to play.
Step by step process:
After you are ready to go make sure your speedlight is facing the wall/backdrop against which the entire setup stands, I set the power of speedlight to 1/128, turn off all the lights
of the room you are shooting in, set your timer & shoot the splashes created by the water drops coming out of the syringe, the higher the position of water source the more dramatic & beautiful splashes it will create.
Be very careful while doing this project as you will be shooting with lights turn off, so take extra care of your gears & since it is associated with jumping water drops so your gear is bound to get wet, ensure you completely wipe if they get wet before storing them.
To add more drama you can fill your syringe with colored water, I filled mine with a brown cough syrup.
Happy & safe clicking . . .
