The Arrival of a New Subculture As a former 40 to 60 cigarettes a day habit I was delighted when the Smoking ban was introduced into Ireland on 29 March 2004, but even with this ban it still did not stop me smoking, infect it made me more determined to smoke ( I supposed it was my the pervasive side of my nature coming out). I kept promising myself that the next budget when the price goes up I'll stop and then the next and then the next and so on, I was now a social outcast because I was a smoker (that dirty filthy habit) it was getting to the stage that every opportunity I got to light up and annoy people with my nasty cigarette smoke was taken with glee on my side. I always knew that smoking was bad for me and that I was doing damage to my health with each and every cigarette but the habit was just to strong and the health and cost could always be justified.

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........
