Nice tutorial I think I'll need to search somewhere for colored pearls and colored foil, which we don't have here right now, but I got all summer :D
I have the same lens and a 450D so I think I should be fine trying it out with the normal flash, I unfortunately don't own another flash yet. What kind of aperture and shutterspeed do you mostly use? :)

Pas de soucis, je suis actuellement en train de m'équiper en multiflash (je vais d'ailleurs faire un journal dessus bientôt) et j'avais justement l'intention de tester tout ça sur un projet de goutte :). Merci encore pour ton aide et tes commentaires :).

do you need a macro lens to do this?
Reply
:iconarwenarts:
ArwenArts Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2011
Oh yes! If you want to catch the approximative same results, you will not do without it. I went by myslef to this conclusion five years ago, after have try without one... Not for a long time, believe me, and when this macro lens arrived at home, my perception totally changed :aww:

Et moi qui ai pensé qu'on puisse faire ce type de photos sans flash! Quand mon 580EX arrivera, les gouttes en macro seront les premières photos à prendre.

Merci bien d'avoir si bien expliqué!
