water droplets: attempt 1

Eighty pictures, and only two to post. How gratifiying! Not. ;-)

When I figure out how to do this consistently, I'll post how I did it. Until then, here is my first attempt at capturing a water droplet.

You did REALLY good! I've never mastered this. I gave up. But these are both really great! Nice job!

Jess said...

Wow. WOW! Such absolutely perfect focus! And look at all the variations of blue and purple tones!

Adeena said...

Wow!!! Those are really, really cool. :D

SarahinSC said...

Can't wait until you tell us how to do that! Amazing, especially the second picture!

Sheri said...

Your second shot is what I was aiming for...but I got one more like the first shot. Good job! Your focus was great, I was too lazy to pull out my tripod and that seriously affected my shots.

If I can get at least one shot like that, I'd be SO happy! These are wonderful, Karli!! Can't wait to hear how you did it. :)

Ashley Sisk said...

I hate you! These are incredible. I really struggled getting my own shot. Teach me big sister.

Mama Hen said...

Woweeeeeeeeee! Don't you know that photographers take hundreds of pictures before they get that one great shot! These are spectacular! You are so talented my friend! I am going to keep saying it, Blurb.com! Stop by and see another video! Have a great day!

Uh mazing! :) I'm guessing that was a tripod shot? was this in the sink or in a bowl or what? How do you come up with these ideas? So creative!

Ashley said...

Those are amazing!!

Natalie said...

Looks great to me! Doesn't matter how many you take as long as you get "the one" in the end, right? My motto anyway. :-)

Heather T. said...

AWESOME!!! Nicely done...even if you only have two out of eighty - these are perfect.

Katie said...

WHOA! Those are fabulous! That second one is absolutely amazing!!! I tried this once...300 shots and not one was half as good as yours!

Cooooool! I've wanted to try this for a while but I'm still too chicken.

Anna said...

Karli! These are AWESOME...reminds me of a famous inventor from the town I grew up in. Anyway, in my mind you're on the same level as him. :)

Anna said...

...didn't explain myself, he invented the strobe light or something and took pics similar to this except with milk. Anyway, GORGEOUS snaps!!

Courtney from The Story of Us said...

I agree with everyone else...these are FANTASTIC! I have never ever been able to get this kind of a shot. Seeing yours makes me want to try again. :) :) :)

Amanda said...

Great first attempt! I am itching to try some water drop photos myself...so thanks for the inspiration!!!

Seriously cool - I'm now hanging out to know how you did it, because it's definitely still in the too hard box at my house!

Sarah Halstead said...
