but can I ask the significance of the title?
I miss that feature that listed some the settings from the EXIF data on the photo! (HEY dA, how about bringing that back!!! It had actually USEFUL info for us photo buffs!!!)
I noticed some comments and your advice. Diopters are one option for increasing the magnification. However, there are a few cheap versions out there & getting quality diopters are an absolute must.
Personally I prefer another method; Extension tubes.
I have 2 of the Kenko triple sets www.kenkoglobal.com/TP-AUTO-EX… and have used both sets at once on my 100L to achieve MPe-65 level magnification.
The Kenko tubes are a relatively inexpensive option too and like the close-up filters they can improve the mag view of any lens. Unlike diopters, Ext tubes have no glass, so they don't add any of their own artifacts or distortions. They do increase the focal length which requires some exposure/shutter setting changes.
I love the vibrant neon colour shock!
It's the manual mode which makes the pictures better than the others
I was just wondering - What camera do you use? I'd love to take some droplet action shots
My pictures are all taken with a Canon 600D. Great one
Oh and I used a closeup-lens. That's very important
Ahh, I see. I have a Nikon D3100. I'm very new to it so I'm not exactly sure what you'd consider a close up lens to be? My lens says '18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G' Does my lens need to get any closer than that? (My old camera was a small compact and easy to use one, so I'm rather confused with all these different options and stuff, although I understand Macro etc) The lens also has the letters VR and A M on it, although I don't know what these mean. I shall have to have a look in the booklet!
Do you need to slow down the shutter speed too?
Thanks dear. Sorry for the large paragraph!
You should buy a closeup-filter with 10 diopters ( that's the strongest one ), because you can get the drop much more closer with a +10 one as with a 4 diopters lens
Yeah, for frozen the drop. I'm not sure, but I think for ma'am electronics ( ) I took a shutter speed of 1/13, so very slow
You're everytime welcome, dear
Thank you so much
Than you have to do this! I'm jealous when someone is talented with art stuff like drawings, because my drawing results are big epic fails ...
