Monday - Motion

My first attempt at "water drop photography".. I must say it is much harder than it looks. I thought I'd shoot a couple images and be done.. NOPE to get the water how you want is not as easy as one might think :).

I shot this for the Monday - Motion (panning or ICM or whatever your notion of motion is) One week only challenge.. It definitely pushed me to try something new! Thank you for this challenge!

I'm also going to Double up and use this for this week's "Zoom" theme.. The water zoomed down into the glass.. and of course I zoomed right in on it ;)!

wow! you have done so well if this is a first attempt

Very nice and I never thought it looked easy!

This turned out great! I like that the water is orange. I've been wanting to try that technique (as I was also under the impression it looked easier than it is).

Great job! Fav! I started one day, but run out of time - it is indeed a lot harder and therefor more time consuming, than it looks. But hope to try some time.

Great shot - I really want to have a go at this but I agree it must be much harder than you think.

Thank you everyone! @teresamaro I found a video on Youtube that explained the best way to get it. I didn't follow it to a tee.. but I used the same concepts. I put water in a bowl and had my daughter drop a few drops of food coloring in... then she held a ziplock baggie of water over the bowl (it had a needle hole in it) and i captured the drop as it fell.
