Beads of a Feather

Pro tip, add a little bit of sugar to your water for more manageable water droplets ;)
Sugar! Who knew? Beautiful. Wonderful tip, thanks.

@deadschool Thanks Jake; it was a little more of a pain in the ass than I'd like to admit :)

Amazing image and selfie(s) :)

really, I never heard about the sugar trick.

@phillyphotos Glycerine of any sort really; I used light corn syrup; just a little bit in some warm water and mix until dissolved. :)

That's amazing! I love how this is a selfie. Wonderful shot!

And a selfie to boot. Awesome bokeh beads of color!

Good to know!

2 questions: Did you place the drops onto the feather with some kind of special dropper? Did you use a tripod to get the shot, or is it handheld? Really excellent photo! :)

@juliedduncan Thanks Julie! I applied the drops with a syringe, and the camera is on a tripod. I have two lights, left and right, illuminating the feather.

What a beautiful golden image with a discreet selfie to boot! Thanks too for the tip. I'll bear it in mind - it certainly seems to work!

I like the combination of the drops and the bokeh...seems very well balanced with that tight focal plane in the bottom third :)
