I must admit, it’s just the third day and it’s not easy! Trying to come up with a new photograph everyday. I remember when I first bought my SLR moving from a point and shoot, I was supper excited. Everyday I was up, exploring with it, getting used to the manual mode. Slowly but surely that interest faded and other things took priority like studies and more recently work! But there is always a way to do things what you love doing. So here I am, still sweating it out, trying to balance out my love of reading, watching movies or documentaries, eating, travelling and doing photography!
So today’s image is the reason I skipped breakfast and even got late for work. By the time I was ready to leave the house I realised I had forgotten to brush my teeth! So I went back getting more late. I didn’t think the day would get any worse with the rains suddenly coming in, but I was so wrong! Out of the house and I have no cash! Bless the people who thought of ATMs, I was saved!
Day 3: Creating water droplet sculptures is clearly not an easy task but I a getting there.
This was the first time that I have used my 100mm lens for these. My earlier trials were made using a reverse lens method for the macro.
My setup consisted of the mineral water bottle with a small cut to create the drops and a plastic container with water filled up to the brim. Shots were made handheld with built-in flash, although I tried using a small LED torch, which sadly didn’t workout. No editing except converting the shots to black and white and adjusting the contrast.
Has anyone tried doing this? Would be delighted to get some great ideas. Do share in the comments section!
