Water Droplets On A Leaf

Water and plants make for stunning macro photographs.

Both are natural materials and they combine to produce incredible results.

Professional photographers often add water to shots of flowers, fruit or vegetables to give their pictures a clean, fresh feel.

Adding water to a natural surface creates an entirely new dimension. Natural textures are already interesting when viewed up close, but sprinkling a few clear droplets onto them creates a new burst of life.

This photograph is a simple snapshot of a leaf on a garden plant, after rain.

You might want to try adding water to other subjects to see how they look. Or even experiment with photographing water on its own. Macro photos of flowing water can produce amazing results, particularly when you start playing with different shutter speeds.
