"I choose to work with moving water, encapsulating refractions and reflections as the drop falls."
prev / next
Connie Publicover was one of the first photographers to pursue working with water drop refractions and she has gained international recognition for the images she captures within a tiny drop of water.
To capture refractions in a falling drop of water, the water drop is used as a lens. The use of a full-frame camera, an off-camera speedlight, macro lense, extension tubes, and a precise setup makes it possible to capture sharp refractions that can be printed full size.
Capturing sharp refractions on demand in free falling water drops in camera has been an ongoing challenge of fifteen years for Connie, and a true labor of love.
