Whenever we see any photograph of such beauty we cannot stop admiring it. Even we feel if we could get such photographs. Yes, we can save them but the picture that we capture from our phones or our cameras makes us feel happier than just saving a picture by others work. So, sometimes we feel we should capture these things and save it for our life. Did you ever feel such kind?? So, let us just get few tips to capture a raindrop or a water drop by ourselves.
How to photograph water drops
Let’s start with some simple tips to capture such beautiful pictures of How to photograph water drops.
Capturing a water drop before reaching the ground and just reached the ground level. Let’s think what are the different ways we can capture a good photograph.
Let us consider depending on different climatic conditions:
If we consider a rainy season it feels to be easy since we have so many drops we can picture any one of them. But in fact, it is the biggest problems in the rainy season because we never know at what speed do they occur.
Sometimes they might be too fast that when we capture any pic we might get a stream of water drops which is not that cool. We do not know when will it stop since sometimes it so happens that from a heavy rain to not even a single drop of rain. So, depending upon the speed of rain we can have the photograph.
In case, if you are able to understand the speed and all then why not try after the rain!!Yes, even after the rain we can have beautiful pictures. The water drops on the leaves or footpaths or anywhere where the sunlight causes them to look brighter we can have a click of them.
Winter is one of such seasons where we find fog not only early mornings but even somewhere around 8 o clock in the morning. If you try and see there are more options in these seasons since fog gets settled here and there and we can get the best of it. If you can get out early mornings we can fond drops here and there and when you try to capture them you can even get that smoky effect from fogs which will add feathers to your photograph.
As we all know summer is the season where we do not find rain at all so in this season if you want to shoot a water drop the best way is to go to a tap, observe the time slices of the water droplets and set your camera according to that. The colors you choose the focusing effect you use in that moment is what your picture about.
The next issue from which camera or effects does it look good?
Anything is good to have a click; the first thing we need to understand is how to focus on what we want exactly. If we can focus on the drops properly without focusing what is not required in the picture.
The next thing would be, understanding how and in which direction does light fall. If we can know the brightness, sharpness and understand how they work for a good picture and adjust in a similar fashion we can get the best shot.
The third thing would be trying different effects available in the options of the camera itself. To know which would suit well we need to have a good knowledge how that effect works. So, if you know that and you have time then we can have a good image with the best quality. And you are not aware of adjusting your effects while shooting then you can directly do edit the image later on.
