Behind The Scene- for Peter

by Camellia Staab February. 10, 2019 380 views

Several years ago when I had just picked up the camera, one of the things I had wanted to learn to shoot were water droplets. I had seen so many beautiful photos and articles, from various people, on how they had captured the droplets and their set up that I figured no problem I can do this. And so with some miscellaneous items found around our house (such as my daughter's old crutches and plastic baggies) the following water droplet studio was created.😉

camera would have been placed on the tripod, but I was using it to take this picture.

With that set up I was able to capture some water droplet photos but most were just simple drops with columns.

Then I came across the Pluto Trigger Valve and of course I had to have it. I had figured it would be very simple and somewhat inexpensive set up to capture water droplets. Inexpensive as compared to the Time Machine Drip Kit .

Inexpensive....... definitely.

Simple....... not quite.

It took me much longer than I had anticipated to capture the photos that I wanted. Photos with water collisions were my ultimate goal. Basically collisions are created when two droplets of water slam into each other, creating different designs.

The set up I used to capture water droplets and eventually their collision has been upgraded a tad from the previous set up and looks like this.

And the result of the above set up has enabled me to capture pictures such as the following.

I can guarantee you that this is the best entertainment one can have during the winter months, when it is too cold to play outside. 👌🙃

Thanks for showing us. Done it one or two times with very mixed results. You are very creative indeed.
