download the file, rightclick it -> properties -> "file info" (or something similar to that, don't know the proper translation, cus I got the german version of WindowsXP).

But there are also exif viewers, which show you the exif data of a certain file.

That is very nice. Were you planning it to look anything like that, or was it just luck?

*phew* I guess it will be impossible to plan, making a waterdrop looking like a frog.

You really used an exposure time of 1/60? How did that work?
Did you use a flash? Which other light sources did you have?

Tell us something about how that picture was taken. And how you made the drop falling down...
I am new to all this (never had a camera before), so I just wanted to make some waterdrop pictures and tried some settings. I made about a 100 pics to catch the drop like this. I tried different settings for the exposure time, 1/60 was just right for this pic. I dont know if its too long or to short for you (think too long), maybe I had a lucky day. And yeah, I used the internal flash at full power to frozen the picture (maybe this is why 1/60 worked), no external flash. The only light I used was a desk lamp to enlighten the scene and to focus (I put the camera in front of the falling drops and used a pen to set up the manual focus). The blue background is just some paper. The drops fell into a wine glas.

These are my "secrets", as you see no magic, just luck.

Maybe I try to get some more good pictures this weekend, I will post them here.

Default Other animals...

Inspired by this thread I "played with water" a bit too.

With a bit of imagination this is a hippo catching a waterdrop:




I found it very difficult to get results as good as redlounge's, but I had fun trying...

this one is interesting, too!
Could you please tell us how you make the drops? What do you use to make a drop fall down?

Thanx. I use my simple water tap in the kitchen to make them fall. No special equipment. In the second picture the drop just came out of the tap, but I had to turn the camera upside down to have no shadows of the pipe.

Can anybody tell me how to insert a picture into my posts? Please. I tried different things. I tried <img scr="">, thats not working, I tried [img], thats not working, I just dont get it...

Happy droppin'.

hi.
thanks for the information.
the [img] tag is just right, but it seems that your webspace provider doesn't allow hotlinking, which means, that you mustn't show pictures on other websites.
