DIY, Bouncing Water Drops #365photoAR

A friend and coworker, Alain, told me about this trick and I decided to try it.. I never knew that tiny little water dropps would bounce off the surface when poured like this example.. Let's start, here's the setup:

And here's a video of how the drops should pour & roll off the surface:

Now, the result :)

A couple of points you need to think of:

  • The water will be pouring, and for that you'll need a fast shutter speed and lots of light.
  • Increasing ISO can help you with that, but with grains.

Have fun trying :)
