Water Drop Photography

I had a lot of fun during my last class of the studio lighting module. Since I had my assignments complete, I decided to play around with some water drop photography. I watched an excellent tutorial by Gavin Hoey that I found on youtube. You can watch it here. It was a fairly easy set up and I got the variety of colors from a variation of sheer backgrounds ( specifically a pretty scarf thanks to Amy ), and food coloring drops. My set up was pretty much exactly like in the video except I used a pyrex baking dish instead of the painter's tray. Next time I think I'm going to try it with milk for a different look. These were some of my favorites... Image
