I’ve been wanting to try this for some time now and my 365 Part 2 was the perfect chance to do it! All it is, is drops of water on the back of a CD. I moved it around until a rainbow of light hit the droplets to make a colorful explosion.
Focusing on water drops is more difficult than one could imagine! I actually had to put this on a tripod, set my aperture for f/16, and then put it on “live view” (where I can use my screen to take the picture). From live view, I was able to digitally zoom in on the picture, manually focus and take the picture from there. I even used the 10 second delay so the camera wouldn’t shake as I pressed the shutter.
All that for one picture! …..Actually 2, because I can’t decide which one I like better.
