We recently had some fun shooting super-hydrophobic surfaces for a news release. In order to get the photo, we painted a wooden stair rail post with Rust-oleum Never Wet white paint and perched a water droplet right on the edge of the top face. I shot this with a Canon 1D-X and a 100mm Macro lens, 1/200 of a second at f/10, ISO 100. Head on over to news.byu.edu to see more photos and this really cool video of a jumping water droplet.
