November 12th BPG Meeting "Making a Splash with Water Drop Photography"

"Making a Splash with Water Drop Photography"

with Jeff Milsteen

 

Our November program will focus on water drop photography.  During the first half of the program, Jeff will walk us through the basics of how to capture these high-speed images, show examples of the different types of images we can expect to achieve, and provide tips on how to achieve the best quality images.  The second half of the program will be a hands-on demonstration and workshop.  We’ll have three water drop “studios” set up so attendees who bring their own gear can give it a try.  All you need is a digital SLR, a close-focusing lens or close-up filter, a flash (preferably one that can be used off camera), and a tripod.  With a little practice and patience, you’ll quickly be capturing some amazing and creative images.  This program will cover all the basics for beginners and provide extra information for those who want to take their water drop photography to even higher levels.

 

A past president of the Southeastern Photographic Society, Jeff has presented numerous programs and judged many photo competitions for Atlanta-area photo clubs over the years.  Jeff has had photographs published in several national and local publications, on websites and exhibited in galleries and shows in the Southeast.   Jeff is quick to point out, though, that he is not a professional photographer.  He is instead proud to be a serious amateur who has a passion for photography.  His photography can be seen on his Flickr site, www.flickr.com/milsteen, or on SmugMug at www.milsteen.smugmug.com.

    Thanks for the kind comments and for the great hospitality provided by the Booth leadership team and members. I was glad to see so many folks willing to brave the cold just to play with water drops! Also glad to see folks posting their images on the meetup site. Best of luck to you all in your future photographic endeavors!

    Jeff, Thanks for a great presentation. I enjoyed hearing about the history of water drop photography. I must have missed the information about a CD being available, but I am interested.

    Any recommended lenses for this besides a macro… wide angle, telephoto? will auxiliary flash be needed, any accessories besides a tripod… sorry for basic questions from a guy who shoots 99% outdoors; but you never known when a bubble will sneak up on you! Looking forward to it; should be fun! Apologies if I missed a previous post on this. bob

      Lynn, as you must know, I'm not a big emailer. However, the Metz I'm referring to is an off camera pro flash that I hardly ever use anymore. I do feel sure that it should be quite sufficient. Hopefully all will do. Thanks, Ken

      Whoops, may cancel the rsvp; no macro and not enough demand to go out and buy one.

  • Ken B.

    Is Metz off camera suitable?

    • Jeff M.

      As long as you can put it in manual mode and control the output level you should be fine.

      Thanks, if I can just remember some things (and I might need a little help in that area), I think everything will work out. Hope So! Thanks Jeff (sorry for the late response)

    Water drops are fun to shoot. I will attend to share my knowledge and experience with the group.
    Will we be shooting in a dark room?

  • Bill K.

    This should be a real hoot! I've never had the op to shoot anything like this before and hope I do not screw up too bad. BK
