Showing you the world from a different perspective

First droplet shot


Copyright © 2012 – 2013 Salim Willshire Photography all rights reserved

Settings: 1/100 f/5.2 ISO 64 19mm (On camera flash fired)

This is my first droplet shot! i know it’s not the best but i’ll keep trying to improve, it doesn’t help having to use auto focus all the while. I was inspired to take droplet shots by Bopie, who has some excellent droplet shots. check out his blog to see his amazing work:

  1. Wow! That is a awesome shot. I’d love to know how you got that rainbow effect. Thanks for the props, but I think that is a pretty amazing shot.

    • Thanks a lot 😀 i’m using a Fujifilm Finepix S4300 its not the greatest and its not a dslr but it can take some great photos. Im looking to buy Nikon D3200 which will allow me to get some even greater shots. Thanks for checking out my blog!

  5. This shot reminds me of the national geographic i was reading earlier today. It was about Kazakhstan’s tattered + polluted everything. 25% of their drinking water is polluted.
    I won’t give you all the information on their plight, but i’d love to see this with dirtier water+a concerned looking Kazahk….
    Great picture.

  8. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how
    you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Many thanks!

  9. This is the perfect website for anybody who really wants to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a new spin on a topic that’s
    been written about for many years. Excellent stuff, just great!
