Just wanted to share my first shots from a short testing session.
I collaged them rather than single photos , these are not the sharpest and that was my fault if truth be known i was too excited to notice at the time 🙂 after reading and some research i will be back to try again , the results are different every time and i love that.
10 mins to watch a video on how to do these
20 mins to collect and setup the water dropper
20 mins taking photos
At least half hour to tidy up lol … Well and truly worth it , GIVE IT A TRY.

I was impressed with your Weekend Challenge shot P71 and I think you’re on to something. I especially like the collage presentation you chose to show your work here. It has a nice Pop Art feel and accentuates uniqueness of each drop. Keep this up!

Thank you Preston i appreciate your encouraging words.
At the moment and as someone new to the craft of picture taking i am really just trying to get a good understanding on various settings for different subjects.
I never knew what i was missing and i wish i had of taken photography up years ago.
Best wishes mate and thanks again.

Very nice! If you can get the drop rate. Between 10 & 12 drops per second you may be able to catch collisions with the worthington jets as well.

Hi guys , thanks very much for each of your comments and glad you liked them.
Many thanks David on the rates you suggested above , i have seen a commercial Dropper i am going to pick up soon because i think i would get long time enjoyment with one , the creative options in PP appeal to me a lot.
Cheers all i do appreciate your time and feedback.

It can become an obsession! Do you mind if I ask which commercial kit you are considering?

Very nice! On a first try for sure!

P71 so nice to see your Splash Art … great captures! I too started doing Water Drop Photography after seeing David Chesterfield’s images here on LS ? … He is a master at his craft and was willing to share his knowledge for which I will Always be grateful! I had not seen your image in the weekend challenge until I saw the comment above, I guess we were thinking alike as I put one of my WaterDrops up too … Look forward to seeing more of your Splash Art … it is very addicting…. have fun
