Dew Drop Project

We have this plant in our 'used-to-be' garden, I don't even know what it is called, but it makes a wonderful place for dew drops to 'hang-on' every morning in the spring. These are a few of the photos I have taken trying to get that 'perfect shot'. You can see the rest of the project images at Dew Drops in flickr - just click on the slideshow near the upper right corner.


  1. Holy cow! These shots are so awesome. I love them. Gorgeous!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. It's been so fun getting to know so many i heart faces participants.... and I'll try to not hold it against you that you were rubbing in your win. haha! ;) Good luck to your step-son too! That is so cool!

  2. Your dew drop pics are stunning. I am blown away. The detail of the water is so amazing. Also, the color is so perfect.

  3. I used to have one of those plants too and they are wonderful for capturing dew, for the life of me I can't remember the name of it. It will come to me at 1 am and then I won't be able to sleep! :) I would love to know how you captured your last 2 photos. Are you willing to tell me what lens/equipment you use? I have tried similar shots with not much luck. Any suggestions?

    Your photos really are lovely and I wish I lived closer to Barn Chic sales.

  4. Rebecca - the last two shots were taken with a Canon 40D and a 100mm macro lens. Of course, I had to use a tripod for those, but with the 40D, you have 'live-view', so you can set up the shot on a tripod and then view from the camera and then use manual focus (you have to use manual focus with live-view) to get the best focus and shoot. I usually use aperture setting at about 2.8 to 4. Thanks for the comments. Wendy

  5. INCREDIBLE photos. Very nice.
