When he's not watching the kids or stumbling over his cat, stay-at-home dad and photographer Shawn Knol takes absolutely stunning, close-up photos water drops. His macro images are brilliant, sharp, and stunning, showing every last detail of the shoreline's lustrous surface and reflections.
Knol loves playing with color and structure in his beautiful photos. Whether he's capturing countless drops revoked on a spider web, cruising in to catch the bold texture of a feather beneath a drop water, or taking photos iridescent spectrum colors dance on the surface of water, the results are always beautiful.
The photographer catches his images using an entry-level DSLR, his two lenses, extension pipes, a flash unit, and a home made diffuser / extractor, showing that the most expensive gear and studio room equipment isn't necessary as long as you have creativeness and vision. Knol also shows his effectiveness in using common home goods for his photos, such as sparkle, tulle, or even different T-shirts for brilliant colored background scenes.
