The combination of backlighting on freshly watered flowers often creates a beautiful scene. In this video, professional photographer Tony Sweet photographs dew drops clinging to a growth of fuchsia flowers. Using a 500mm lens and with a high shutter speed, he shoots the blown-out dew drops to capture blurred visual abstracts. In both vertical and horizontal formats, he shoots at various angles to pick up the rainbow spectrum caused by the over exposed highlights. He also experiments with different focal points for creative variety. Discover the dew drops in your own backyard garden and have fun creating colorful abstract images.
