My first go at water drops (and a couple of hundred pictures later!!!) out of these two examples which do you think is better? Both shot with 50D and 60mm Macro. Many thanks

Love both - the second one is superb.

Any details on how you set these up?


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

Many thanks for all comments.

The setup was my Manfrotto 190XPROB holding a sandwich bag filled with water over a baking tin with containing water. Off camera flash pointing at the backdrop at 1/32 power. Then make a hole in the sandwich bag, focus and loads of pictures :)

Many thanks for all the comments above. I was very pleased with the results :D

My setup was my 50d with 60mm macro lens, off camera 430EX flash set at 1/32, 250 sec at f8, and camera in high speed burst mode. But it was timing for taking the shots that was difficult, so many shots came out with nothing happening !!!
