Five Elements

June 30, 2017

 

Since the very first groups of people started to gather together and make communities the need for comfort, food and some sort of belief system has been a fundamental part of their lives.  Whatever part of the world theses people gathered they soon all became fascinated by what we call today the Five Elements.  All cultures from very different parts of the world who never had any contact with each other all seemed to develop a belief system that followed along the same lines of these essential elements.

Water Droplets are one of the most Fun and Frustrating kinds of photography that you can take.  I have over years tried so many different ways to try and get good droplets images and have failed more times than I care to remember.  The one bit of advice I can give is to research watch as many videos on YouTube or other sites before you try, preparation get everything ready before hand and check it twice and then check again just to be sure.  ALWAY REMEMDER  (if using studio lights) ELECTRICTY & WATER DO NOT MIX WELL , watch out for over spill with the water. 

 

The best way that I found to try and get these images is to use two flash units one on either side of the bowel of water and different colour cards to give off  a different colour  to you water droplets.  Milk, Food colouring, cream and other liquids can also make for very interesting effects, one of the best videos that I first used to try and get these image is the following from an amazing photographer Gavin Hoey and it can be found at the following link........ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwExpFDUC9Y
