Water Droplet Photography (Part 3)

Today I want to show you some of water droplet photography I did. You might be wondering, what the heck is that? Well for these photos, I just took a DVD that failed the burning process (a great way to recycle them) and some water (dripped onto the DVD using a laboratory pipette). The rest is self explanatory. For some shots, I used a flashlight and for others I used my Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT for some cool lighting effects. All of these photos were taken at home with the help of my Kenko Extension Tubes. The lens used in these photos are my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens mounted on a Canon EOS 7D

Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 |

Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 2 seconds ISO: 100  
For this photo, I went back and forth with my LED flashlight. You can kind of see the pattern in the water droplets. I think this is one of the best I did because I achieved a rainbow which I think looks pretty cool. 

 Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 2 seconds ISO: 100  
I moved my LED flashlight a little bit in this one. Still kind of the same position as the photo above with the DVD moved slightly.  

 Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 2 seconds ISO: 100  
I lit this photo with my LED flashlight. Don't think I moved it much. The DVD is in the same position as the photo above.  


 Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 2 seconds ISO: 100  
I lit this photo with my LED flashlight in a different position. Don't think I moved it much. The DVD is in the same position as the photo above. 

 Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 5 seconds ISO: 100  
I lit this photo with my LED flashlight in at a different angle. Don't think I moved it much. The DVD is in the same position as the photo above.  

  Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 5 seconds ISO: 100  
I lit this photo with my desk lamp. The DVD is in the same position as the photo above.  


Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 30 seconds ISO: 100  
I circled the DVD with my LED flashlight in this photo. The DVD is in the same position as the photo above.   

 Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 30 seconds ISO: 100  
I circled the DVD with my LED flashlight in this photo. I cleaned off the DVD and gave it a spray with my spray bottle. 

 Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 3.2 seconds ISO: 100  
I moved my LED flashlight just a little bit in this shot and I think I also used my desk lamp to light this photo. I cleaned off the water and made a new pattern with my laboratory pipettes dripping on bigger droplets of water. 


 Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 3.2 seconds ISO: 100  
I moved my LED flashlight just a little bit in this shot and I think I also used my desk lamp to light this photo. this photo has the same water pattern as the photo above. 

 Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 20 seconds ISO: 100  
I moved my LED flashlight just a little bit in this shot and I think I also used my desk lamp to light this photo. this photo has the same water pattern as the photo above except this time, I accidentally hit my tripod about 3/4 of the way into the exposure which is why there is a double exposure in the image. I thought it looked pretty nice.  

Aperture: f/22 Exposure: 62 seconds ISO: 100
I lit this photo with my desk lamp. I made a new pattern on the DVD by wiping it off and dripping out a new pattern.
