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.
