These next series of photos where taken during a heavily cloudy, rainy day. I’ll say it again, you do not need a beautiful day to take great photos. As long as you have the correct lenses, flash and know what your equipment is capable of doing, they you have the ingredients to make great photos.
You have to be really careful when you are dealing with a macro lens. You need to make sure you are focused on subject. In this photo, my subject was the actual water droplets. You can see how the depth of field is with two objects which are less than half an inch away from each other. I placed my flash about twelve inches up and about six inches forward of my subject. You can see the effect on the background and how it is nicely illuminated.
