Boy, I haven't posted here for a long time but I haven't stopped shooting 6D. Today I was outside fooling around out of bordom with some dripping water since temperatures went above freezing. I'm curious if anyone has any comments on how I can accomplish the goal of using a water droplet as a lens to create a scene that is both a landscape and abstract.
Here are a couple of the shots, either using 70-200 F2.8 II or the 300 F2.8 II with an extension tube for closer focus (inverted to right the image). Getting sharp focus was really challenging, especially due to the wind but the wind was giving some interesting effects.
So, any ideas anyone on how to improve on what has be captured so far, or alternate ideas?
Hi Jack, good idea, I think maybe wrong Lenses.
I haven't tried this, but I have done a lot of underwater Macro, similar, sort of.
Your best shot might be a 100f/2.8 L IS, set to f16/f22, manual focus to where the drops are occurring, use a Flash to freeze motion.
There are People that do this sort of thing exceptionally well, and some have Posted on CR, so don't take my view as Gospel, just my thoughts, look forward to seeing you nail it, good luck.
