This macro water droplet was captured last July when I was trying a Strobist flash project for my project 365. The color comes from a flash with a green gel bounced off white background. Canon Canon 40D, 1/250 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 100, 50mm macro.
Back in May I saw a blog post and video on Strobist.com about taking water droplet photos using a single flash. Well I finally got around to setting it up tonight. There were so many amazing images I had a hard time choosing one for the picture of the day. This image's psychedelic lighting comes from bouncing the flash off a holographic patterned gift bag. I rather liked the effect, I hope you enjoy it as well. Canon 40D, 1/250 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 100, 50mm compact macro lens, off camera strobe at 1/16 power - creating a 1/11,000th of second light burst.
