First let me wish you a Happy New Year! May all your dreams come true in 2018!
Back to photography let me add a new article to the series of posts started 2 years ago that express my view on this wonderful hobby and art.
In nature photography it is essential to always get a good lighting. Let me explain: not all subjects might be interesting at first sight, yet if you have a good light they will suddenly become atractive. The quality of light depends on more things such as: season, time of day (avoid harsh midday light), weather, surroundings (obviously essential for finding the right subject and composition too), etc. A full-time nature photographer makes some thorough research of all these conditions prior to taking the breathtaking pictures, which will later be published on magazine covers.

Here some more pictures with droplets. This time I used an on-camera flash (with a collapsible diffuser) as the available light was pretty poor. Another solution would have been to use the tripod without flash, however I wanted to test the effect of flashlight on droplets. I find the results pretty amazing but I’m sure there is always room for better. I’ll keep you posted on my future “experiments”.
Enjoy! Any feedback is highly appreciated.
