50 Howling Examples of Dew Photography

April 29th, 2010

Dew drops, the water droplets condensed from the air, are a beautiful gift from Mother Nature. Dew drops have a novelty in them. They are vivid and delicate, warm and cold at the same time. They sparkle like pearls on the surface. Mornings become more refreshing and brisk when it is drenched in the dew. They are simply amazing… Capturing dew drops is considered to be the best illustration of macro photography.

To excel in dew photography, it you have to focus on curves, saturation, a bit of color adjustments, composition, lighting and an unsharp mask on the dew drops that are in focus. It is mostly done in longer exposures. But at the end it’s the talent and skills of the photographer which make the photos outstanding. In this post we present 50 refreshing images to brighten your day.

    This is a really nice collection, especially love the colours of the Dawn Dew on the Pasture shot.

    It seems as though one of your thumbnails (for Spider Web Dew) is broken though, it shows as a boot with a spider in it for me. It does link to the correct place though.

    Really incredible how close up those images are.

  18. CMJ on April 30th, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    Hey, these are some excellent photos. I think, however, that photos taken right after a quick rain can be equally refreshing as in this photo: I hope you like it! :)

  19. Ben on April 30th, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    Impressive, but “Howling” does not seem a great word to express beauty:)

  20. Jo Woods on April 30th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Dude thats the coolest thing ever dude.

  21. Schwancy on April 30th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    I agree, these are awesome. But “howling” doesn’t “dew’ them justice.

    Dear Bhanu Ahluwalia,
    I love all of your work that I’ve seen. You have a love of nature and a patience that I understand. I’m out early, in the cold mornings, trying to catch “frost flowers” or dew drops regularly.
    I’m sure you get a lot of questions like this, but I will ask you ~ would you be able to please tell me what macro lens you use? I have been taking nature photos as a hobby & for my grandchildren, for years. I now have a good camera (Canon 60D) and am just beginning to save enough money for a good macro lens. I want to do extremely close up shots with it. Would you please advise me on what macro lens you think is best? (I have a Canon 60D) Thank you so much for any advice you feel like sharing with me!!
    Blessings in your wonderful work, Mrs. Gail Rowley
