"Bubbles and Water Drops"


Destrehan, US
          

Too hot for the bugs and for me. So trying bubbles and water drops. No electronic triggers , just a burette tube and my finger on the shutter button.

Was curious if a drop of water would burst the bubble . Much to my surprise it did not.

D800 105mm f/15 1/250 ISO 250 All with SB900 and SB600 off camera
Manual focus





D800 105 mm f/8 1/125 ISO 250

Number 1 and 2 are fantastic; my picks. I am curious about your flash positioning and bounce cards, difusers etc. Gotta love that 105 lense.
Thanks for posting.

Hi Dale,

I had a piece of white poster board behind the dish.
I had the SB900 on the left aimed toward where the drops were falling but angled where some hit the board also.
I had the SB600 on the right aimed to the poster board.
I played with the flash setting, tried TTL and manual. Found manual did the best set at 1/64.
Tried overhead lights on and off, and found lights on did better.
No diffusion on the flashes.

Hope this helps.

Birdie
