    Default Water Drop Set-Up

    Thought I would just make a new thread of my water drop set-up since there was some interest.

    This is my whole set-up. I used a different lens/extension tube combo this time.

    Setup1

    You see my camera on the tripod with my 50mm lens and 12mm extension tube. I put the pen where the water was dropping in order to catch focus then switched the lens to manual focus. The bag has a small hole in it that allows the water to drip consistently. My flash is up above the camera and shooting at the paper so that is illuminated, which then reflects on the water. All lights were then turned out to take the pictures. I should have been more careful with my masking tape because you can see it in the pictures I took

    Here's another look at the camera set-up.
    Setup2

    And two photos from this.

    awesome! I'd love to try this...except my flash doesn't come off my camera i have a 430ex speedlite. I *TOLD* my husband I wanted the 580 but he wouldn't agree with me!!!! grrrr I could always bounce it I suppose but I have no where to hang a bag. Hmm...will have to do some experimenting thanks for sharing your set up!

    Thanks girls

    Loida, you should still be able to use your 430 off camera. If you look in my pictures, I have mine on a cord. You need a hotshoe to fit onto your flash and then a cord to connect the hotshoe to the camera. Or you could probably spend just a bit more and get some cheap flash triggers. I have had a set of Cowboy Studio flash triggers on my amazon wish list for the longest time. They're only about 30 bucks....probably should just bite the bullet and buy them. The cord does get slightly annoying.

    Deidre, my daughter LOVES to help me with anything photography. She helps me hold the flash, holds paper, the reflector. Or if she's not interested, DH entertains her while I play around He's pretty good about letting me do my thing.

    Awesome setup! Thanks for showing it. I really want to try this, but now to find the time! The girls are NOT good about letting me do my own thing yet. If I am home I MUST be with them. It annoys me sometimes, but then I remember that there will be a day when they won't want me around. And in a few more months they will be able to help to! That must be fun to have a little adorable helper like that!

    Too fun! I love the effect of the flash bouncing off the construction paper.
