Default My first attempt at drips

Just got my A1 on Tuesday so I've been playing around with it and taking tons of pictures, here was my first attempt at photographing drips from a faucet, didn't have the focus quite perfect but it turned out okay:



Settings:

Shutter Speed - 1/2000
Fill-in Flash
F/3.5

Comments and suggestions are welcomed

how did you make those drops?! they are perfect! i only wish they were sharp... :/
do you have a manual focus setting? that would work the best.....

I set my kitchen faucet on a pretty slow drip setting, I was originaly trying to capture just a single drip, hence the fast shutter speed but instead I got that shot.

I do have manual focus so I'm going to try again later and see if I Can get a similar shot with the drips being sharper than they are.

i think the others that have done this successfully have been using a penci as a reference of focus and then moving it away when they take it.....

another thing.....i don't know if you want to add a colored towel or something as a background....make it colorful

btw, i didn't even think of using the faucet to drip lol i just poured from a cup.....your way is better....and you can aim it lol

keep shooting
