Just added as my entry for the Water Drops Contest hosted by #FireAndWaterPhotos.

I just got interviewed yesterday for one of the major local channels (Channel 7).
They did a thing on my water shots, guess someone likes them! hehehe I'll put in a link to a youtube version of the newscast once they release it on TV.

Nikon D70s
Vivitar 100mm macro
Tripods for both camera and speed light flash
Bower speed light flash

ISO 200
1/5000 shutter speed

slight post editing in PS (dust removal, levels adjustment, mild sharpening).


WOW!! :o

I was wondering why this deviation was getting so many comments, and since I haven't had my coffee yet, I completely failed to notice the small box with the little heart on it's side...
*pats self on back, and thanks profusely :iconassassinm: for being so kind as to suggest this and :iconhellfirediva: for considering it worth of a DD.

My third, but in no way less exiting and important than the other two, this DD is my firsts relating to my work with water drops.

So, since this is going to get major hits here are four links some of you may find interesting:

1- My interview on a local television news show (Costa Rica - in Spanish but I added subtitles). Don't mind the ugly guy talking, just look at the pictures :D INTERVIEW: [link]

2- If you're curious as to the home studio where I take my photographs, heres a [link]

3- Want to learn how to take these kind of photographs? I made a tutorial, and no, it's not for experts, it's for anyone with a camera that has a manual mode aside from the full auto mode: [link]

4- Finally a link to my water splash gallery here: [link]
I'm going to upload some new ones today!
Or if you want to visit my site: [link]

I'm going to have an art show for these photos, in the Juan Santamaria Museum in the Province of Alajuela, for two months, from May 5th to June 31st. I will post pics after the show and news if I where able to sell at least one print :D

Thank you so much for visiting and leaving comments!
(so happy and exited!) :D :hug: hugs self!

wowww.. how come that splash of water become umbrella-shaped like that. nicely done

Thank you :) The secret lies in getting a second drop to hit the column created by the collapsed crown of a first drop. I made a tutorial about it and also explain it on my youtube video (an interview I gave about it).

I see, thanks a lot for sharing it, I've visited your youtube link but I cannot understand since it was not in English..

The subtitles are not working? (can't check it from here).

Wow this is beautiful and makes a refreshing change from some of the more predictable macro shots (don't get me wrong, I think there cool, I can't even get one in focus! ) I love clarity/colours and textures, very creative )))
