Even though I took nearly 2,000 of these types of images before – I knew I could get better shots! The biggest thing I changed with this shot is that I put my 18-135mm lens on all 3 of my macro extension tubes instead of my 50mm with one or two extension tubes. Another thing I changed was I made sure the water was ice cold because I heard that would give me better splashes, but also it wouldn’t fog up my lens.
I am really pleased with the quality of photos I was able to get this time around. They are infinitely sharper and turning the camera vertical also made a big difference in being able to capture all that was going on above the lens.
