Water Droplet Photography
One of my favorites from my new water droplet shots. All the shots can be seen on my facebook page: Nick T Photography.
Contrary to common belief, this shot does not require a macro lens if your on a budget like most students are. I did it on my 50mm. The plate that held the water was visible in the original image on the corners, but a simple small crop hid that nicely without affecting the resolution terribly.
For the flashes, I did a cross light set up. One light was behind the plate to camera left and the other in front of the plate to camera right. They were positioned only a couple inches higher than the plate.
