Rain Drop Perspective on Black
This seems such a simple photograph at the inception but there are so many things to write about.
Science: Surface Tension on a freshly waxed surface with pure Wyotana rain water (rare these days). The water droplets without the tendency for hydrogen bonds and dipolar interactions would be all connected in a thin sheet. Instead they take random dome shapes due to the nature of the atomic alignments of water molecules. It’s all about physics and chemistry at the basic level.
Photography: Boy is this a classic example of “Depth of field” of focus. Note the droplets in the middle of the photo are in perfect focus. The droplets in the foreground along with the ones in the background, are OUT of focus. This of course adds to the sense of perspective of Close to Far. A photographer can control how deep/thick that “zone” is by going to the dreaded manual mode. F-stop mostly controls the depth of focus which varies highly within different lenses. Using any telephoto for macros like this gives you this blurry effect at this range (about 3 inches from the center). The focus zone is maybe 3 inches thick in this particular macro.
Art: I don’t do a lot of photography for ARTS sake but I consider this as artsy as I’m going to get this week. I saw the texture and was instantly enthused. The perspective ability of this Sony/Zeiss 90mm macro lens blows me away routinely lolol. I would strongly recommend the platform (Sony Alpha).
Location: Bliss Dinosaur Ranch, Wyoming/Montana borderlands (Wyotana)
