This spring I've had a few opportunities to photograph some water droplets. Here are some samples, I took most of these photos as example shots for a macro photography course I am teaching at my local college, starting today!

How can you make the droplets? Are they natural or made by you?

BTW, Amazing series...!

Thanks for the compliment! In the first three photos, the droplets are made by me. They are a mixture of water and glycerine. In Number one, the were applied with a spray bottle, where as #2 and #3 were set in place with an eye dropper. Those three photos were taken on my kitchen counter :)

the others in the set were found in a field, just after a fog had passed. Early morning is your best friend to find natural water droplets, especially close to the ground.
