My lab.




This was the setup for taking the liquid macro shots while placing the photoalbum behind the water tap.
You can see the bulb, and the plastic glasses acting as a stage for the drops! :)

ab said...

why did u place here box and plastic glass , weren't u able to capture tap drops without them ??

::Deta!l*d m4cr0:: said...

I placed em because I need support from them, this setup was from my early liquid macro photography! :)
Now, I can do without em!

ab said...

ahhh i see .. could some one take these shots without using macro lens ? does macro lens really make difference ?

::Deta!l*d m4cr0:: said...

yup you can, you need to have a fast shutter speed to capture the drops. A macro lens only enlarges the drop, if you have a built in macro mode in your camera then theres no need.

ab said...

okie then i will try someday , but why did u suggest us to use macro mode i think manual mode can bring best results we should n't rely on pre designed camera mode ??

::Deta!l*d m4cr0:: said...

hehe even when the manual mode is on, you need to have the macro mode on to get a tact sharp focus on the falling drops!
