Daily Shoot Motion

Illustrate motion in a photograph today.

Today my new project was trying to capture a drop of water. I read up on it a bit and then started playing. I used plain water, this blue water, cream and cream dyed pink. I got the best captures with the blue water. I was using a turkey baster to drop the water. I wish I had something smaller. I think a cable release would also be handy. Many of the shots were out of focus. Maybe I should have tried a smaller aperture. It wasn't easy to try and shoot and get the water drops right where i had focused the camera. I had a light shining directly on the water/cream from the left and right. The bowl was on a black background but that made it too dark so I set it on a white paper towel instead and that helped. For a first attempt I am pleased with this shot. If you have any suggestions please feel free to pass them along.
