Colliding Water Droplets

Here is a shot of water droplets colliding at high speed.  Red food colouring was added for artistic effect.

Macro Water Droplets

Here is another effort at macro water droplets – a slight improvement on my last effort but like everything else there are always limitations, unless you have endless cash to spend on additional and higher specification flashguns.  I used my Nikon SB-400 mounted on my Nikon D7000, as unfortunately my off camera extension cord appears not to be compatible with my D7000 (it previously worked with my D3000).  Consequently, the few shots below are a result of 3 hours work and numerous missed and out of focus shots.  Enjoy.

Water Droplets

I have been sitting twiddling my thumbs during the last week or so due to the constant winds and heavy rain.  Not living near the coast where there must be some spectacular photographic opportunities at the moment, I decided to try and have a go at water drop photography.  Not having (or indeed wishing to pay a small fortune for) the professional water drop kit, I achieved the following shots with a macro lens, flashgun, glass bowl and of course a  suspended bag of water punctured by a needle. Adapt and overcome, as they say.
