Waterdrop | by mescon

LOBB (large on black background)


I just purchased an SB600 flash unit which can be remotely controlled by the D300 (wireless). I thought I'd try something with it today, so I setup a waterdrop scene! :)


Here's a video of the setup.


The water is dark because I poured alot of chocolate powder (oboy ftw!) in the water. The resulting droplet that comes back up from each impact is not yet heavily saturated with chocolate, so it's much brighter.


I dont have a "real" macro lense, so I used a 50/1,8D, focused on a pen that I held where the waterdrops fell, then cropped out the areas around the water.


Hope you like my first try :)
