I've been wanting to try this for a very long time now. Today being the last day of Spring Break, I thought it was the perfect time to give it a shot.
Man it's tricky. I went out with a water bottle, spritzed the heck out of my potted garden on the patio and attempted to find decent water drops to shoot. I took out the tripod, but in the end just found it easier to hand hold the camera. Sure, I didn't have much flexibility in my shutter settings hand holding, but I gained so much more flexibility in shooting angle.
I like this shot, but I'm sure that with practice I can do a lot better. In fact, I'm out to see if I can find better flowers to shoot as soon as I finish this post. I remember some pretty white flowers when Nathan and I were on our photo walk the other day, so I'm going to see if they are still pretty and if there is a way to get them in a water drop. Will amend this post later if I am successful.
Until then. Feast your eyes on this!
That was fun! Back from my little flower drop trip. Man, this is a hard trick to pull off out in the "wild". The slightest wind made this very difficult...and hand holding is shaky business.
Here is my attempt at the white flowers. I really love it!
And guess what else I found. Another ladybug! Poor thing got spritzed when I was making water droplets.
