"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.
