Water gems in action…

As I stated previously this weekend I did some shots with the water gems I purchased last week. They were interesting to play with and produce a distinctively different type of splash than an actual water droplet.I have some other ideas as well of ways to use the water gems which should prove interesting.

I still need to do a lot of work on the setup of these splash pictures.  While I have the basic camera settings down there is still so much room to play. In my current set up I have to shoot at an angle so I don’t get a line across the background which s the edge of the pan. And because of that angle I am also getting the bottom of the pan in the shoot which I don’t like. What I would like to do is build a frame that I can use to have the water drop consistently hit in the same spot.

Here is one of the shots from the water gem session.

  1. I’m following these splash photos with interest. I tried some a while ago, but couldn’t achieve anything other than very basic splashes at the time. I would like to try for something a little more arty. Watching with interest.
