Water droplet photography

So after an age I have been able to start with doing some water droplet photography, this is my first try and a few lessons learned.

Firstly the boring bits:

  • Shutter speed: 1/250
  • ISO: 400
  • F-Stop: f16
  • Camera: Cannon Eos 700D
  • Post editing
    • With the exception of cropping there was no post editing, so what you see if what you get.

 

Lessons learned

Focus:

I need to work on the focus a little more, the water is fine but the droplets are not as clear as they should be, perhaps I need to move the focus up a little.

Background:

While black is doing the job I may need to have a play with other colours but we will see for next time.

Lighting:

The lighting is not as simple as it appears to be, I need to work on that quire a bit.
