I got a bunch of notes on how I made this photo: [link]

And while you're at it: [link]

So I decided to make a tutorial. I don't know if it's useful. Let me know if you have some use for it...and if not, not.

Hit the download-button for fullsize. But beware, it's quite big.

Edit: HOLY CRAP!!! A DD?!

I should probably say something cool or inspirational in this moment, but my brain just went offline...

Thanks to all the comments and favs, I will come back to you, I promise. When I made this I didn't thought it had any use at all. Maybe I have to rethink my standarts...

If you use this tutorial, please send me a note. I would love to see your version and I would like to link it to the tutorial. But it's your choice of course.
Here are some examples of peoples who used it:

Suggester's words: I'd never have guessed how those captures are made. [Tutorial by *Stoppelbart] is an amazing tutorial and explained it very well! ( Suggested by PatrickRuegheimer and Featured by FantasyStock )

Can a samsung cell phone camera do this???? and what is apature?
DanielHeydecke Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014
While I haven't ever tried it with a cell phone camera, I'm pretty sure that it won't work. The main reason is that you need a powerful flash, a certain level of magnification and you need to be able to change the settings of the camera manually, like the shutter time and such.

As for what apeture is: I made another tutorial that's dealing with that Topic (although just a bit). Maybe this will clear things up:…

Very good tutorial, now I am going to try it out.
Have already come around the issue with the drops staying on the surface by using an injection syringe and dishwashing soap.
