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.


  1. Oooo! You nailed this one! Excellent capture!

  2. Nice catch. Not an easy shot. Well done.
