Playing with water drops

Yesterday I felt like doing a bit of a macro-ish weekend project and thought it might be cool to play around with water drops. I experimented a bit with on how to generate water drops in a blue washtub of water. In the end, I used one of those zip lock bags filled with water and a small hole in one of the corners. I hung this bag then about 1.5 meters above the tub and let it drip.

Camera on tripod with my Canon 100mm mounted. To capture the drop I needed to use 1/250 second shutter time. Due to the lack of an external flash, there was no way around using my integrated flash. Still, for a first setup I’m pretty happy with the results!
