Water is a lot of fun to play with. I’ve spent hours taking photos of water drops, attempting to get that perfect shot. We won’t spend hours on drops though. once we’ve got the hang of water drops, we’ll move on to dropping other things in water, splashes, and water ripples. This is a funky little area of product photography that’s a lot of fun, and can have a few refreshing commercial applications.
As usual, feel free to bring anything in the product realm that you’d like to photograph. But it’s going to get wet. So plan on that. It’s going to be soaked. Don’t bring it if you don’t want it soaked. You can keep your camera and strobes out of harm’s way, but whatever we’re photographing is probably going to get at least a little wet. You’ll need a camera with a hot-shoe, and a manual mode. Also, it will help a lot if you’ve already taken the beginning product photography course. You should also probably bring an extra pair of socks. Water tends to get all over the floor, which means you’ll probably step in it. My favorite solution to this problem is just to be barefoot, but if you’re self-conscious about your toes or whatever, an extra pair of socks will keep you from having to go home with wet feet.
