Water droplets are an interesting subject to try and capture. When photographed up close, they look phenomenally out of this world. To get started, simply find a dropper such as a medicine pipette and a container filled with a liquid of your choice. The higher you position your dropper, the bigger the impact of the drop looks.
For a sturdy shot, mount your camera on a tripod. For the best results, use a macro lens such as the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G or the AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED. Macro lenses allow you to get up close and capture intricate details of the water’s texture. By using different shutter speeds and apertures, you’ll be able to achieve different results.
