Today we stayed in to give Dave a chance to rest and relax after his first week back at work post surgery. I couldn’t believe what a difficult time I had feeling inspired. I mean really, really, really difficult, and with far too much confidence I figured I would just work to improve on the “skills” I picked up from yesterday.
I call today water droplet photography part two (worse than part one but most sequels are, right?). I tried using milk this time. I had to try for a very, very, very long time to get a handful of decent shots. Oh and Dave, don’t plan on cereal for breakfast tomorrow morning, I used the entire carton to get this one picture…
For the shot I used my Canon 6D and Canon MACRO Lens EF100mm 1:2.8 USM set to MF. I set the dial to Av, ISO 200 (to reduce the noise), and Aperture f5.6. I took today’s shot later on in the day than yesterday’s and the light created really annoying shadows. I had to use my TT560 SPEEDLITE flash but still ended up with some shadowing.
I will try this again because I think it’s interesting and it’s a really fun project (no milk next time).
