Simple DIY Home Water Drop Studio

Figured while the kids were napping I'd take a few minutes to try my hand at water drops.

First, the setup:

Ziploc bag partially filled with water and Scotch taped to the cabinetry above the sink.

Nikon D300s and Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 with Phottix wireless remote shutter release and SB-400 on an SC-17 cable. Aperture set to f/11, shutter at 1/320th, manual focus.

Next, making the drops:

Used a razor blade to put a very small slice in the bag to create a constant, yet slow drip.

-8* F today but I just had to get out and take some photos, including this 5 exposure HDR image of the Mayo Support Center North.
