I've watched Gavin's video already which is where I wanted to start taking pictures of the water droplets..I basically used all the settings he did EXCEPT I don't have an off camera flash wireless receiver.

My flash was on the camera itself.


I wasn't very prepared on this set considering I used a baking pan as the catcher for my water droplets. LOL...But for a first attempt I think it came out pretty good.

Tried some water droplets myself, with not very much preparations. On-camera flash and baking pan, just like you, Pete :wink:
Didn't get the reflection off the blue sheet right, so I faked it with white balance :lol:

I'll do better preparations next time

Heia Norge, nice shot Janern

You could use a light source under your water pan (transparent of course).
