I know Corrie White for about 2 years, and during that time she continues to be an authority and an inspiration on everything related to water drop photography. She has written numerous guides for DIYP (including one of our most viewed posts ever: The Comprehensive Water Drop Photography Guide) and has a thriving Flickr stream of drops of all kinds. This is why I was excited when she put a book together – The Ultimate Guide to Water Drop Photography.
A few weeks back Corrie asked me to read a book she was putting together about water drop photography, and I thought that it was a great opportunity for anyone who likes this kind of imagery to learn a bit more about it.
Before I go into an in depth review, here are my two big takeaways from the book:
- Corrie makes it look easy, like anyone can do it. She breaks everything up in almost a fool proof way, although there is a lot of tech involved.
- Corrie’s approach is semi-artistic-semi-scientific as you would probably expect form a water drop tutorial book. Each factor is measured and compared, so if you are not getting this book for the beautiful photography or for the in depth tutorials, you may want to get it to satisfy your scientific curiosity.
