Rainbow Drop by Bimmi1111 Rainbow Drop by Bimmi1111
Water drop floating on the surface of water! I took this one differently than I usually take my drop photos. I turned off the flash, raised the ISO, sped up the shutter speed, and used a flashlight on the iridescent paper behind the bowl of water to create the colors. The flashlight technique is something I picked up when I was shooting photos with a Kodak Easyshare z981 and it seems to work well with my Nikon too!

Camera Nikon D5500
Macro 85mm lens

Photo has contrast, brightness, and saturation adjustments as well as being cropped.

Thank you!!
The reason I did this one different is because doing it the normal way the photo was just coming out blue instead of all the colors I wanted :rofl: so I had to experiment!

Ha ha ha I suddenly had this mental image of stereotypical mad scientist armed with a camera taking hundreds of photos of droplets of water! lol Do you have a mad scientist laugh?

It's funny, but I never associated the image of your icon with you the person! lol I have made some mistakes in the past about who is the person behind the camera.

When I was young (many moons ago) I was very surprised to see what Salvador Dali looked like! He looked so funny with that moustache. Nothing like I imagined.

Lol that is quite the moustache! When I was in kindergarten my favorite singer was Tom petty... I loved his music... Then I guess one day he came on tv and my mom says I got all upset and said "that's Tom petty!? He's ooooold!!!" Hahaha
