How did you do that first picture? Did you add that effect in with Photoshop? or is that basically how you took the picture?

Interesting, I thought you might have had a faster shutter speed than that for that picture.

I find webdesign/photojounalism to be the hardest pictures to take. But I have been getting better with going out and taking a certain type of picture, aka on assignment, for my school newspaper, so hopefully I'll be getting some experience.

its not so bad with web design you can get away with jpgs and stuff you collect - but on advertising stuff like brochures and other print stuff - you need to pay for them and high res images cost a bomb!

That's pretty sweet that you got that first picture so simply. In the August issue of Popular Photography & Imaging, there is an article on a droplet shot this woman took. She had a very complex studio set-up and all she had to do was to wait for it to rain. :wink:

hehehe I think I may have taken a few other pictures of it if I remember correctly...not sure tho! I did take a droplet picture in my sink once, filled it with water then turned the faucet on so it just barely dripped every 15 seconds or so.

Bah it's nothing technical! You just have to wait for the picture, I find that is the key, and take a lot of pictures! I had about 10 of these that were out of focus completly!

I think I got a good one, the bathroom was poorly lit, so It had a pale glow to it, not that sharp light like you see in "professional" droplet pictures. I don't know if I still have it somewhere, but I will keep my eyes peeled.
