Oct 21st---294/365---face inside water drop-(explored)

i was trying to shoot reflections inside water drops the other night----- it was my first attempt at it and i for sure learned a few things about light direction and position of the object that you want reflected into the water drop -- it was tougher that i expected to get it exact with lighting and focus when working in macro mode is always an issue not to mention that the water drop keep falling off or dripping away and i had to try and re-put a new water drop on --which again makes me shift all my focus and light cause the water drop would never land back in the same spot from last time -- so that was also a hassle -- i did try about 4 different reflections like a couple words and some swimming fish but the last one i set up was this photo magazine with a picture of an asian girl on the cover ---so after some focus and a few tries i manged to get her face inside the water drop and in the end this was my fav from the shoot ---------this was day 294 --


specs -- sb-800 low shooting at the background(which is the photo magazine with the picture of the girl) shot at 1/20the power via nikons cls ---
