I have been working on a personal project that was shelved for a little while. I have been hunting for old ruins that stand as a reminder of what was here in a previous time. Old farms and the associated buildings mostly. It is interesting to me that the place where I live with all the sub-divisions and roads and strip malls was once farm land. Anyway, I am putting together a gallery of black and white prints for a September show. The picture above is of a ruin that stands in my neighbor’s yard.
I finally took the time to try my hand at shooting water drops and while I have to practice more I think my first result was ok. This was all done with the camera on a tripod, manual focus, one strobe and a lot of shots trying to get the timing right. LOTS of wasted shots.
Next time I need to get a larger pan to hold the water (so we don’t see the edges of the pan) and I want to gel some strobes to get some color. I know lots of other photographers do way better than this with water drops but for 15 minutes just playing around with water, I think its cool! Unless I get something spectacular I promise this will be the last water drop picture I post here.
