Water Droplet Macros
Not sure where to posts these - where do macros come in on the specialist forums?
Anyway, I got a high speed photography setup this week & these are the very first efforts with it.
Cool shots, the first really rocks for me; a nice contrast in the B&W. I like the third one too, it works well in the portrait frame.
though the first shot isn't actually B&W, it's just that the other 3 had a blue gel on one of the two flashguns.
For first efforts, these are very good Garry. I like them.
Something that I keep meaning to try for myself.
been playing with the flashgun gels today...
some from this evening as I learn to control the timing better
V. cool shots Cathus. Excellent.
Can you share the setup? When you say high speed, how high speed are we talking?
These are brilliant shots :-) You have done a terrific job with these! I think there should be a new category in the special interest forums called Art/Experimental because these would fit there. I struggled with my pig mask shot so put it in portraits when really it wasnt a portrait but just an experiment.
Did you put water in a tank for the water drops?
Fantastic shots ! Favs for me 1, 3, 6, 7 & 10, but they're all good.
They completely fascinate me, the fact rain does this every time it hits a puddle and most of us are too busy seeking shelter to marvel at it's beauty.
Perfect captures !
I saw some interesting ones done with Milk and Food Colouring, just in case you get bored of water any time soon...
between 1/9000 & 1/27,000 of a sec, which is the duration of the flash depending on what setting it is on. Basically, I have a timer system which drops a constant sized droplet of water through a beam, the beam triggers the flash. The camera shutter is open (until I familiarise myself with setting it up to be triggered by the timer also) & captures what is frozen by the flash.
the water falls 2 feet into a cooking dish of water, maybe 2/3 inch deep
yep seen those too, stay tuned!
