A Single Drop

Posted by
Sarito (Basingstoke, United Kingdom) on 29 May 2012 in Abstract & Conceptual.

Here is the set up:

Ingredients: Water tap with some space in front and in the back, Camera, Tripod, a light source (torch, flash gun) and a backdrop with pattern (a paper, cloth etc). In this case I used a checked shirt.

Setup: Quite simple, camera @ the front, the backdrop at the other side of the water tap and the light pointing at the backdrop. Now focus and shoot :). You will have to try different apperture, shutter speed to get the desired result. For yesterday's shot I left the water flow continuously and for today's drop by drop :).

Water 2/5.

Canon EOS 60D 1/250 second F/7.1 ISO 100 60 mm
