MR. DRIPPY. (08/07/16)

It’s been a damp and warm and miserable and happy day. Happy because Alfie’s mum came for her tea and miserable because it was damp verging towards soaking wet.

I haven’t sorted drips but am getting better. I’ll get better when I sort focus stacking out and have lost my droopiness. I can remember posting a macro of a Biro ages ago when the software was in it’s infancy. We used to have to stack a pyramid something, Dz or other. I now pay for stacking software and use Zerene. It is brilliant but I don’t use it enough to be competent with it. I like shooting au natural or as I find stuff I tend to find focus racks and tripods a pain. I am fortunate to find flash and strobes intuitive so being lazy use artificial, controllable light whenever possible.

Todays shots are strobe free and taken by a drip.

Nice drips no stacking.

Much the same, this is the flower head of the plant we used to pick and stick on our peers backs when we were eight years old. Don’t know what it is but it is common like me.

Drops on Nettle Flowers Focus stacked.  I wasn’t plugged in to live view as it was misting down getting towards pissing down.  Not a bad image but verging on the middling, Not a place or time to risk a computer in.

That’s all from MR Drippy . A lot of work for a few mediocre drips but I enjoyed myself.

  2. I usually forget about trying drippy photos. I think my favourite of these would be #3, simple yet effective.

    1. John. I just have to practise with Zerene. There was little else to do on a wet day.

    1. Graham, the amount of drops we get I ought to be a master of the drop.

  4. I have no beef with your dripping photos, Adrian! No.4 is especially appealing.

    1. Bill, I was half satisfied but will try again as I think a high magnification drop withe something interesting in it could be spectacular.

  8. Well Mr Drippy. I think these 'drippy' shots are fascinating and I especially like no 3 & 4

  9. I've done a bit of stacking, indoors in winter, and was surprised by how many shots it could take to nail it although I am not sure that I ever did. Good work here, especially the ultimate photo.

    1. John the only way I can get really good results is to use the laptop and Canon utilities. These were only 7 shot stacks and the intervals guessed on the macro plate.
