Water droplets close up and personal

I love macro shots of water! I don’t know what it is, but adding water to a macro shot makes it look magical. There are so many different ways to shoot it. The water droplets splashing in the water are my favorite. They’re my favorite because there are so many different stages of the drop in such a fast time, you can never predict what you are going to get and they turn out awesome! Getting the droplets to hang off of the stem (1st photo) is actually a difficult task. plants repel water, so getting them to stick is a miracle from Heaven. A good way to get cool looking water on plants is with a spray bottle. With that, you get a lot of miniature droplets that look super cool. Another trick while shooting macro is to always use Manual focus. If you use auto, it will  take forever.
