Many photographers have asked me for an illustrated and comprehensive explanation of how I make my water droplet images. I'm happy to share that Nikon has just published a lengthy article on their website that details exactly how to make them. There are 20 illustrations, as well as detailed camera, lens, exposure, lighting, and subject ideas that will immediately get you immersed in the process.
Water droplet images are something you can create anywhere and they are a great way to stay warm while making pictures on a cold, winter day. The process reminds me of the Zen-like peace and solitude of darkroom work and it's the perfect way to start or end a day. Put on some music or a podcast, grab a cup of coffee or your beverage of choice, and prepare to be consumed by a progression of pictures. I hope you'll give it a try! https://www.nikonusa.com/en/learn-and-explore/a/tips-and-techniques/tiny-bubbles-photographing-water-droplets.html
