Water drops by a Brisbane macro photographer

It’s been fairly rainy lately and I haven’t had a chance to do much macro photography. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at photographing water drops but haven’t seen them laying in the right positions.

My favourite part of this shoot was that the water drops magnified the texture of the flowers’ edge.

    Nice macro images. The magnification by the water drops themselves adds interest.

      That was one of my favourite parts too, Mike. My girlfriend studies biology so she was pretty interested by it also.

  2. These are gorgeous! Seriously looks like something right out of a National Geographic magazine!

      Thanks, Jess – if only they were!

    Amazing photos! I haven’t had a chance to try shooting with a macro lense but when I do, I hope they look like that.

    I spent a week in Brisbane a couple of years ago and all it did was rain 🙂

  4. Impressive bud. I’ve done some Macro work but these are really nice.

    Great photos, nice composition.

  6. Excellent work Matt, I really like macro photography and you manage it perfectly. Can you tell me what lens you used for these shots? greetings.

    1. Matt Warrell says:

      Thanks, Luis. I used my MP-E 65mm for these shots. Hard lens to work with but gets great results I think.

  7. Those shots are amazing!! Nice work 🙂

    Great work! Simply breath-taking.

  9. Wow very impressive! Do you use a ring light for some of these?

    1. Matt Warrell says:

      I use a 580EXII on a flash bracket to get the lighting angle I need. I prefer it to a ring light because the ring lights give a flat light which takes away from some of the finer details of the bugs. Thanks for checking it out!

  10. These are amazing, particularly love the B&W macro shots
