14/365 Making a splash

Capturing water droplets in a photograph comes close to the joy I find in capturing lightning. It's one of those subjects where I stand by the camera and say, "How cool that I can do this with my camera!"

The nice thing about water droplets is it's a much easier subject to manipulate.

I've seen other examples online of how this can be done, and I think it can be more eye-catching with a darker surface. I need more contrast between the water and surface. Unfortunately, this yellow serving platter is the most vibrant item I could find.

Sounds like I need a shopping trip. And that doesn't require much arm-twisting.

Camera: Canon 40D with 430EX Speedlite, 1/250s, f/4.5 at ISO 1600
