A super fun photo project for you to try at home - photographing water drops!

We are currently in day 93 of the shelter-in-place here in Northern California and I don't know about you, but I am going stir crazy. Two days ago, I decided that I needed to challenge myself with a photo project here at the house. A couple of ideas came to mind, but the one that I was most excited about was photographing water drops. I had done this for the first time about 10 years ago, and then again 6 years ago, but my photography skills have gotten better and I thought it was time to try it once again.

The whole setup only took about 15 minutes (with a frying pan, a ziplock bag, water, my camera and flash) and it was surprisingly easy to get photos like these. It was so easy that I thought "This would make a great video to show you all how to do this at your house." So yesterday I shot and edited a "How-to" video to share with you.

If you like these photos, you need to try it yourself.

I kept changing the objects in the background to get different reflections in the water and drops.

It is fun to shoot images and different points of the water drop.

You might be wondering how I got these colors reflecting in the pan of water. You will have to watch the video to see how I achieved this.

Ok - the challenge is on for you, your family and friends! I hope that you capture some awesome photos. Post them to social media and amaze your friends. Oh, and make to tag me (@jeffcablephotography) so I can see them as well. Haver fun!
