Detergent into water (red bowl) (5 years and 2355 days ago)

Are you using a dedicated macro lens or are you cropping down?

author says:

Nah macro lenses are too expensive for someone like me . +4 Hoya Close up lens on a 70-210mm lens (I think I was at 210...), this photo was not cropped. I kinda wished I had it a bit lower though.

ahhh ok, that would account for it being a bit soft. Still a great capture though. You also have a bit of motion blur on the drop itself, what was the power setting on your flash?

author says:

Oh I do my water droplets quite differently than normal. I set my camera to 1 second exposure and then I use an old external flash (Minolta Auto 200x) to manually flash (so like the test button). Its a hassle to set up (and to press 2 buttons in a certain order) but I liked the results so far and it allows me to control where my flash is. My power setting for my flash is at low since I can adjust how bright my image is by simply bring my flash farther or closer to the subject and it saves power (and faster recyclinng time!).
