    You shouldn't give away your trade secrets. I would have never known.

    Very Nice Todd, But I see you and I had similar problems with the "object" in the bottom half of the bubble--I have a couple of ideas to correct this that I am going to try--if they work, I will gladly share. If you resolved this, please share your secrets.


    Nice shots by the way.

    very nice job too Todd!


    I guess I got some ideas from your pictures, are the images in the drops the reflections of the back ground?

    Thanxs JJ


    yes, i bounced the flash off the background image.


    in the first shot you can see my flash in the top bubble as i had it too close to the image.


    I need to soften up my flash(s) a bit.

    Bob,


    yes i was a bit discouraged with that. I think it all has to do with the position of the water drip in relation to the image and where the flash is bounced off of.


    my 1st shot almost had the image even in the bubble. i had my camera angled up slightly for that one. I was using a clear pyrex casserole pan.

    I am going to sleep on it and will try again. I will let ya know if i figure it out.


    BTW,...i used your meat thermometer technique and it works really well!

    Decided to give it a go. Got a keeper pretty early on. Thanks for the enlightenment!

    Freelanceshots,


    Yes i probably would do the kenko set. As brian said in his review, kenko air is just as good as canon air.


    I would be interested to see some results from using an extension tube with a "true" macro lens and what type of difference it would make.
