I have heard it is quite difficult to capture water drops with a LED flash since it does not freeze the moment like a Xenon flash does. However I wanted to capture them drops and I almost succeeded, the results were blurred beyond visibility. Used this Android app called Camera ZOOM FX, which allows one to capture instantly (of course there is a slight delay) al least it’s a bit faster than the default CM10 camera.
Here’s what I managed to capture and it did turn out pretty well. It’s similar to a Light Painting technique of photography – the stream of water acting as the light due to the refraction.
There’s a lot one can do with the phone camera, it’s all about having ideas, patience and skills to adapt to any environment. Next photo I’d love to try would be with a Xenon external flash + Android phone camera.
Hoping to capture more..!
