Water Drop Splash Art
Learn how to take water drop photographs with us. This is a hands on tuition workshop where you will start by learning the basics of simple water drop photography using our high speed flash equipment, including the setting up, how to light water drops and how to set up your focus point accurately for this kind of photography. Once you have grasped the basics we will move on to more advanced techniques during which time you will be using our electronic drip controller to try to photograph water drops, splashes or crowns as well as reflections in the drops.
You can also hire our equipment by the hour without any tuition if you just want to play!
What you will need: You will need a camera that can be used in manual exposure mode where you can set the Shutter Speed, ISO, and Aperture as well as a Macro lens (preferably around 100mm focal length). Most DSLR cameras and Compact System Cameras can do this and you will be expected to know how to change these settings. You will need plenty of battery power and memory cards. A tripod is also required although we can supply one if required.
If you are using a DSLR you should have Mirror Lock Up enabled and ideally Exposure Simulation turned off. Nikon and Canon DSLR Cameras with a plug in remote release socket are ideal although we can work around most DSLR or CSC cameras. Your camera will need to be mounted on a tripod which we can supply if required.
Should your camera be unsuitable for this kind of photography we can supply a camera for you to use although you will need your own memory cards (CF or SD)
What we supply: We supply the tuition, flash guns, triggers and stands as well as all the water drop equipment, backgrounds and coloured Gels. Tea and Coffee is available as well as standard 240v plug points should you need to plug your charger in during the day.
The Water Drop Splash Art Workshop costs £45 per person with a maximum of 2 people per session.
