More experiments with drops of water on flower petals. Or as I like to call them ‘Flowerdrops’.
Don’t ask me why but I love to play with this concept. For starters it is fun to do, and I can learn a lot while trying to beat the problems that I will encounter.
It gives me the opportunity too play with several aspects of photography, think about; Close-up shooting, light setup , composition, and color
. So in a very tiny space I can work with all these different factors. Just see it as my mini studio on the dinner table in the kitchen. The only thing that you need to remember is to keep your flowers fresh…
- Close-up shooting: Static objects, so no moving bugs and other influences from mother nature
- Light setup: You can use small flashed and little pieces of paper, so no big studio lights and soft boxes.
- Composition: It is very important to set the right position, (otherwise the water drop will not show the image of the flowers in the background) So I need to think about composition which is a nice challenge. But also possible because of the small setting
- Color: Most flowers are very colorful, which gives me the opportunity to play with these colors, and the small setting gives me the freedom to easily change backgrounds.
If you keep the above in mind you will be able to create nice pictures. For me it is looking for that little bit extra. And I do realize that I still have many roads in front of me.
