Water droplet photography

You can have so much fun with your camera and water.
Two things to remember when photographing water is that you need plenty of available light and a quick shutter speed to be able to freeze the action. Your camera on a tripod so that it is still and focused on the glass while you simultaneously poor the water and press your shutter, have your camera on continuous mode so that it fires several shots in one go. You also need a bucket underneath the glass so that your floor wont get too wet from all the splashing water.
Here are a few shots I did yesterday while just testing out my set up. I need to work on my tilting wine glass because it is not properly fastened so I don't dare poor too much water and too quickly. I would like the water to go splash everywhere but if I poor quicker than I did yesterday my wine glass would fall and break so need to figure out how to make it more stable before I try again. :-)
If you give this a try please let me know how you get along.
All the best.

Photography work shops in Dubai

I can't believe that I did not have time to make any postings in December at all. I was super busy with so many photography projects at once through out December and then on top of that I caught a really bad cold. I am still suffering a bit from it. Not nice at all. Hope you are all alright and have managed to duck the colds and the flu's for this season.

I am right now working on a Photography Workshop so if you are interested to learn more about how to use all the different buttons on your camera please give me a call. I do One on One work shops as well as small groups.
I start at the level of photography you are at and then we go through the topics that you want to learn more about. Be it general photography or more specific areas of photography that you would like to niche in on. Just let me know at our first meeting.
I would like to see samples of your photography work first so that I can see where you are in your photography and where we need to go more in depth.
I customize the photography workshop to suite your schedule and photography level.
To start with I have a Photography Workshop Package of 6 hours split into 3 or 4 sessions. (Most of the time 2 hours at a time) You bring your camera along we start with some theory where I explain and show samples then we go out together and photograph the areas you want learn more about.
If you have a friend or a few I also teach small groups.
Give me a call to find out when we can start with your Photography Workshop!
All the best.
