The Water Drop Adventure

Published October 1st, 2012

While I have dabbled in water drop photography before, I have never truly given it the time and patience it deserves. Today was another attempt at rushed perfection.

The categories consisted of farm equipment (boring), or any form of water. Water drop photography was the first thing to come to mind, as I assumed no one else in my small town would think along the same lines. So I set off to create my water drop rig, consisting of a dropper pipette, a cooking pan, water, dslr, cable release, two flashes, and an array of gels.

Hopefully the judged will like my photos!
