Day 5

 

Today I tried to capture dripping water as it fell into a wine glass.  I was dripping it off my fingers because I didn’t have a good way of photographing this under a faucet with the lighting nearby.  I figured it would be fine to use my fingers, but then I ran into an issue of repeating the drips in the exact same place.  My focal plane was probably only a few millimeters thick, even at f/11 and I still wanted the front and back of the wine glass to be out of focus so I didn’t want to go much higher than that.  All that being said, I still think this came out pretty well even though the drop was slightly out of focus.  I ended up using an unsharp mask to bring out the detail as if it was in focus.
