that takes a lot of time, patience and practice. those pictures you see above have not been made by a single shot. often you need to make hundreds of photos to get one that looks amazing.. all in all it's just about experience and maybe a little bit feeling for what you do.. ^^ oh and a remote trigger also helps!
For the first question, it totally depends on the remote, but mine is not expensive. 30 dollars i think. The tripod is moved to the right direction and turned down against the bowl all tripods should be able to twist and turn the camera. glad you like it!
the big problem for me is losing location of where i dropped from. (Using an eye dropper.) don't have great hand-in-space memory or a steady hand so a lot of drops -- most -- end up outside the camera's focus, even out of the image entirely. how high do you drop from? do you use something to hold the dropper or whatever you use in place? (the camera is in place with the tripod, i need an eyedropper tripod! < smiles> ). any tips on this, suggestions? i can't think of anything but constructing a lever arm that attaches/clamps to the table i can move up and down and lock in place (sort of like one of those reading lamps with the lever arms). thanks.
I probably won't aim that high yet... seeing as I've been taken photos for 1 week now (it's my camera and my anniversery today!), I don't think contests are my place right now. but I will definatley check it out and try to get some inspiration.
hi there again friend! do u have an assistant with you when ur doing these shots? It's awefully hard to have to do the drop and focus at the same time. I found it very hard to do autofocus while doing waterdrops. how do you accomplish this with one hand on the remote and the other focusing? thanks!
Ah, i dont use autofocus
i usually take my finger above the surface and focus on that to find a sharp focuspoint. then i try to drop where i had my finger..Understand?
Things happen to fast for auto-focus i think
YW...and I have SO MANY questions according to photography. I have this camera since a few months and there's so much to find out... So I think I will do a lot of trial & error myself, before bothering s.o. else with my questions..... But tnx NIW
