Wow! Was this a challenge. So much more difficult than it looks. Experimenting with mixtures of solutions and colors between the dropper and the base. Experimenting with lighting, shutter speeds, DOF and post processing. The information on the internet is helpful but its a whole other ball game when you try to do it yourself. This wasn't the sharpest water drop image I got but I really liked the way the colors blended in with the drop. I can't even take a guess at how many shots I took!! I do have to say though that it was addicting. What a mess in my basement.
