Outstanding Photos of Water Droplets

by David Peterson 3 comments

Water droplet photography looks really impressive, so impressive that you might think it requires a lot of complicated equipment and an expensive setup. Not so! With just a few simple pieces you can build your own droplet photography studio and get some very impressive shots. Once you've mastered those water droplets, try shooting drops or milk, or add some color to the water and the background. Pretty soon, you'll have some shots that are as impressive as these.
