Columna 1 | Waterdrop Studio by JacktheFlipper-de Columna 1 | Waterdrop Studio by JacktheFlipper-de
Nikon D90

The hours we spend in our Studio where countless, the outcome was awesome, we couldn´t stop trying until we had over 10.000 captures taken. Than the selection process began, it took 3 weeks to sort the motives out and postprocess them by cleaning out the sensor spots. We worked with one ten thousandth of a second exposure time.

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-10-06
Columna 1 | Waterdrop Studio is a stunning example of water droplet photography. ~JacktheFlipper-de has managed to make it wonderfully abstract with the intriguing shapes created and the colours too. The reflection, especially, adds further depth to an amazing piece. ( Featured by 3wyl )

boaaah wie krigt man denn so einen tropfen hin? :D dat geht doch nicht, das is eine lüge!
hast du den wassertropfen auf 300km/h beschleunigt oder warum spritzt der so mega nach oben und auch noch in so einer hübschen form? 
mhh oder hast du irgend eine geheime zaubermixtur ins wasser getan? 
I am a dummy!

Hi, das fotografieren der Tropfen ist eine Wissenschaft für sich!;)) Es hat uns sehr viel Geduld und Geld gekostet, diese Bilder so heraus zu bekommen! Die Form ist Zufall und da dieser "Aufschlag" im Bruchteil einer Sekunde von statten geht, kommen dabei die schrägsten und auch minimalistische Motive heraus, die so nicht reproduzierbar sind und absolut einzigartig sind! Außer jemand bastelt das komplett in Photoshop, aber selbst dann erkennt der Fachmann den Unterschied zwischen dem Foto und dem Photoshop erstelltem Bild! Unsere Bilder sind zufallsprodukte aber sehr aufwändig produziert und vor allem mit viel Schweiß und Herzblut.........

Das Wasser wird Guarkernmehl angereichert und in das Becken gibt man einen Tropfen Spüli hinzu. Die Belichtung von hinten spielt eine wichtige Rolle und das Steuergerät, welches die Schnittstelle zwischen Kamera und Motiv (Wassertropfen Steuerung/wie groß/wie schnell/wieviele Wassertropfen etc.) darstellt und koordiniert! Um diese Fotos so zu machen, wie wir es getan haben, muß man zunächst ein Wassertropfen Studio bauen. Gesamtzeit war ca. 1 Monat inkl. Aufbau und Durchführung. Und das insgesamt mit 10000 Exposures und daraus haben wir eine handvoll Tropfen herausgepickt. Diese wurden dann nur bereinigt (Flecken auf der Linse, Verfärbungen und Pixelfehler wurden korrigiert!) ansonsten wurden die Fotos so belassen! Ich hoffe ich konnte Dir einen etwas genaueren Einblick gewähren! Wenn Du sonst etwas wissen möchtest sag einfach bescheid;))

Lieben Gruß

wow.
ich dachte eigentlich hajaa so schwer kann das nicht sein, ich kanns ja mal nachbauen und selber probieren, aber oh mein gott! :D
muss man dafür studieren?! unglaublich!
ich bin echt sprachlos was das für ne arbeit macht. Mir war klar dass das sicher in bischen tricky wird aber gleich so? jesses maria
ich kann mich noch daran erinnern als ich vor ein paar jahren versucht habe wassertropfen im waschbecken zu fotografieren...satz mit x, war wohl nix :giggle: ich war danach einfach nur gefrustet dass es wie kraut und rüben aussah, aber ich glaube wenn man sich echt gut damit befasst, alles richtig ausleuchtet usw kann sogar ein wassertropfenbild im heimischen waschbecken was werden :)
und was bewirkt eigentlich das guarkernmehl? hab eben shcon öfters gehört dass man glycerin ins wasser macht oder eben spüli, aber mehl? 
hast du auch schonmal so bilder gemacht, weissu solche wo man z.b. erdbeern ins wasser wirft und es so tolle blubberblasen gibt? ich glaube das werd ich mal probieren ^^
hab auch schon ein altes aquarium besorgt ;D

und vieeeeelen vielen dank für deine ausführliche erklärung :blowkiss:

Hey, I dont really know much about this so I have to ask. Is it possible to take an image of a droplet hitting another droplet? Not sure if I'm making sense or not, but I've never seen a picture of it before and I think it could look rather interesting.

All I'd love to know is how someone begins to set up a shot like this. In terms of props and lighting. I understand it's backlit, but with what? This has been a long-held conundrum for me. All I see when I see amazing photos like this is how on Earth did they rig the lighting? How is it that the water looking infinite and appears to be contained in nothing? Everything else seems pretty self explanatory.

The lighting set up is like this: Behind the watertank, in which the water is dropped is a frosted, acrylic glass panel. Behind that, the flash is aligned facing the tank.
Mounted on the flash are some blue LEE Filter sheets, that causes the blue gradation. A second flash is fixated right above the watertank. The 2 flashlights are triggered together by a controling device and they expose the picture, the studio is completely dark and the camera is in bulk mode!

Hope I could help;-))

it's hard to explain! We spent 2 weeks in the house and built our own water drop studio with lighting and special mixed water. We ordered technical equipment in the us (here in germany we doesn't get it!) and made it like trial and error. In the End we got over 10000 pictures and from them we sorted 6!!! out which we find the most interesting ones! But there is still much more to come from that! We are working on new drops with different colors and shape! These are NOT "photoshoped" These are photos! Nikon d90 was used for that! In the present we are working with the nikon d800. Hope I could answer some of your questions! Stay tuned & have a nice sunday!!

The first thing I was wondering seeing this fabulous photo is: HOW? I mean, I thought it was a well drawn digital drop, not a photo! How did you do that? It's so clear and smooth, well done!

Hi;)) The room in which we photographed these Waterdrops was completely dark!! Only from backwards we installed a computer directed flashlight to give enough light to the actual exposure, when the camera was taking pictures!

Best regards

Ein blitz? Mit was fuer einer Software laesst sich denn ein signal zuerst an den Blitz und dann an die Kamera senden innerhalb von max. 1/250 sekunde? 
Danke fuer die schnelle Antwort :)

die Kamera braucht kein Signal da sie sich im BULK Modus befindet und der Verschluss komplett geöffnet ist! Das Studio muß dabei komplett dunkel sein, denn der Blitz belichtet das Foto! Das Auslösesignal von dem Blitz wird durch ein externes Gerät getriggert (Steuerungsgerät), welches seinen Impuls von einer Lichtschranke bekommt, durch welche die Wassertropfen fallen.

Hoffe ich konnte helfen;)
