Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I came downstairs and decided to play around with our new camera. We recently purchased a Canon Rebel XSI/450D. My wife loves this camera and has been learning and working on her ability to use it. During some photography research we came across a gentleman that takes great pictures and we were reading on the various techniques he uses. One of the pictures he had done was of a water drop, and it was very cool. So I googled to get some instructions on how to do it myself and also got a youtube video. All of the instructions I read talked about using remote flashes and macro lenses both of which we do not own but I wanted to give it a try anyway. So I gathered up my supples and gave it a go, two of the images are only cropped and in the other I lightened the drop to see the effect and cropped it.
Okay so my high end gear was:
- Canon XSI/450D, with 50-250 zoom lens
- Plant starter tray (kind you start seeds in)
- Zip lock bag for drips
- Binder with tinfoil laying in front to bounce the camera flash
It is a start I have some other things I want to try.
Okay I spent some time playing in Photoshop this morning here are some changes.
