Day 99
Drops on dvd. Colorful. Macro can be endless fun.

A little back story... Mike Powers sent me some shots he did with drops on dvd using LED Mag lights to light/highlight. His were very cool, so I had to give it a shot.
Only problem, I couldn't find my one and only mag light! So I shot these anyway out on the sun porch with afternoon sun streaming in. Fewer options with the light, but it works. And wouldn't you know it, when I put the CF card in the computer to process the pictures - I found my maglight.  It was on the floor next to the computer.  The light must have fallen off the computer table at some point. Next time I'll have a light to experiment with!

Photo info:  ISO 100 f/8.0, 0.5s, 100mm.   Water drops, some with glycerin on DVD ROM surface. 

Lessons learned: Need to experiment with the angles.  Light not too interesting from directly above the surface.  Flash lighting was tricky.  Liked the colors produced by side lighting from windows.  Needed to shade the skylight above this setup.  I need some colored LEDs.
