Nice 100% technical and sharp, but try to give more humanity to photo, people dont like perfect photos
I watch you long time especially very hard taken photos such airgun pellet and drop, ballon and now drops..and feedback on them. All are perfect, but I think too much perfect for now. People wants something new, nice but not as sharp, technically perfect. I think only with part of human mistakes, blur and larger dof.
it's a very valid opinion as I tend to be baised towards the technical aspects of capturing an image. Once I have the techy stuff nailed I start to think of other uses for the technique.
It's taken me 3 evenings to figure out how to capture the droplet in a bubble and to get a reasonable success rate at it. Now I can start to play but I will always aim for perfection because that's how I work
Fantastic shot, Kev! My only nit-pick is the reflection of the light on the bubble. Yeah, I know it would be next to possible to eliminate, but maybe if you tried omni-directional bounce lighting - like off the ceiling, and maybe bounce boards or a white sheet even. Just a thought...
Aside from that minor pet peeve, it really is an outstanding shot! Bravo
I've been thinking about bounce flash and it's difficult to get enough flash power and still retain the very short duration flash which the 580Ex gun gives at 1/64th of full power. To use the guns at this low power they are positioned less than 6" from the bubble.
The right hand reflection is the annoying one but it is the main backlight for the droplet using a tight tube of paper around the flash head to give a very directional light source.
