A drop of water might seem mundane, but if you take a picture of one the right way, it can be absolutely stunning. No one knows that better than Markus Reugels, the guy who took that amazing “world in a drop of water shot”. This is how he does it.
It’s not just brandishing a camera at water, Reugels has a sophisticated rig with plexiglass panes to affect the light, homemade modifications to beef up the flash, and even some gels used to colour the splash. Ultimately, a lot of what factors into the best shots is luck, but the whole process is impressive nonetheless. [PetaPixel]
