Shoot Droplets Surrounded By Color  post by Ben F

Found this very interesting the way water droplets are used like wide angle mirrors photograph This is a creative way to get the most interesting reflections. BenF

Aim to capture the depth you see here. For example, the little in-focus reflections of the out-of-focus flower petals. The darker green lines in the brighter green stem. The partially visible yellow center, both in the flower and in the reflections.
To experiment with this effect, place your camera on a small tripod or on something to steady it. Make sure your flower or item of color is positioned as you want it. Put a macro lens on your camera or place your camera in macro mode. And in this case, face the lens straight across at the level of the droplets. Not looking up or down at them. Be sure to focus in close enough on the drops so that the background is smooth and out of focus.
