Water Drop Photography is a style wherein one drops a liquid into another liquid and photographs it in a way that emphasizes the “unseeable”–little droplets, the corona of the drop, and more. This style uses high speed flash in order to stop the action instead of fast shutter speed. It is a simple technique that can be achieved with even the most rudimentary gear, but it can produce infinitely different results. Just like snowflakes, you’ll never be able to duplicate a water drop.
In this workshop, we will begin with a live demo describing the gear, settings, set-up, and execution of water drop photography. We’ll then dive right in, beginning simply and then moving on to not just water droplets, but also other items! Photographers of all skill levels are welcome, but one should come with patience!
Two important notes: We will be using flash in this workshop. You do not need to own a flash, and we may use only what we have anyway, but you are welcome to bring one if you have one in order to understand how to replicate it on your own. Also, to minimize on gear and space, we will be working in groups of two.
