Here are two images from from just one of the set-ups we’ll be doing at Pinelands Photography School’s, MACRO Photography & The Natural World workshop next weekend. This is simply seltzer water and some plastic flowers in a small, square tank. I used an ordinary desk lamp and daylight balanced OttLite bulb to illuminate the subjects and bubbles. Using live view, magnified, I manually focused to be sure what I wanted as the center of interest was as sharp as could be. Then, I set my ISO to 800 to increase the shutter speed and insure my focused bubbles did not show any motion blur as they expand and travel to the surface. It was easy to do and the results are a fun departure from the ordinary!
