Hey, last week I was trying to compose water droplets with my new tamron 70-300mm lens for nikon. Since there is no VR (stabilization) I arranged my camera on pile of books. First shoot is without flash and uses light from the window behind. Second shoot is with flash with white paper behind the bowl. Since auto focus was difficult I captured all shots in manual mode. Setting focal plane was difficult so I used small plastic ball and set it afloat in bowl, adjusted lens so that ball is in center of bowl and visibly clear. Since I don’t have remote to take shoots, it was very troublesome to adjust shot at 10sec interval, and then to go back to bowl and make water drop on bowl. For second shoot I used droplets from water tap, just to make drooping of water automatic.
Fist up in the air
