Amazing shots, especially the first.
Thanks for sharing.

(PS - it's good to number your images which helps with comments and feedback).

I agree with you. The complementary colours are striking. Thanks for your kind comment.

From the archives. This is a miniature pansy about the size of a quarter. It had rained a few hours before and I saw droplets on alot of the petals of flowers in my garden. Got the idea to experiment and so I misted with a hand sprayer applying a fine mist on these tiny flowers and used my Tamron 90mm macro coupled with some extension tubes and was rewarded with some decent results in my opinion. These "large" drops both upon careful examination show me along with the lens end on the outer circumference on the drop which I thought was pretty neat!

Not quite the standard water drop shot but i hope they still fit in here OK:
balloon 4a by Mike Kanssen, on Flickr
balloon 7 by Mike Kanssen, on Flickr

I believe both were shot using an Industar 61 adapted onto my Nex6

Thanks, Mike. I like both vodka and whisky. You have given me a new challenge, how many ballons will I need?

Thanks, they were both shot during a club session, where I got very variable results. A friend was able to shoot at 60fps & later showed 3 successive shots, the first with the rubber just starting to split, the second similar to my first 7 on the third the smallest water drops had disappeared leaving more or less just a blob of water with surface texture.

I can see why so many of my shots just showed the blob falling out of frame (or the cameras buffer filled before the balloon burst. I can't imagine doing it with film!

The number of balloons needed depends on how quickly you get fed up of trying!
I think we used 2 packs on our second session of trying. Sorting out a frame to suspend them easily & lighting adequately without spill on to the background where things that needed significant improvement after our first efforts.

We did try one with alcohol (bio-ethanol from gasoline blending) added, but it was a pain to fill & the balloons got mixed up so we could never work out which it was. Results were quite variable anyway & it's effect must have been fairly minor. There's certainly room for a lot more experimentation.

All good fun as long as you stay reasonably dry :)
