Photography – Water Drops

 

Water Drop“On one drop of water are found all the secrets of the universe”, Kahil Gibran

This was a very fun photo shoot. There was this leafy plant in my family room. I decided to  spray the leaves. I set up my tripod and attached my macro lens to my camera. Then the shoot began. Lighting was not a concern. There was plenty of natural light streaming in from the windows where the plant was placed.

In shooting macro the best tips that were passed along to me were:

 – shoot in aperture priority mode using manual focus

 – shoot in live view and magnify the area you are focusing in on

 – place a diopter (magnifier) over the live view screen to further focus in the subject

 

Macro Lens; manual focus;1/4 sec; ISO100
