Thanks for the comments.

Seattle - I love those shots and like that one white piece of gum. When you shoot, do you have the lens completely parallel to the drops or do you shoot from an angle like in the setup pic?

Gary - I should have explained more since my setup pic is so crappy. I actually tried catching drops as they fell, but quickly gave that up since getting anything CLOSE to Ander's shots would be impossible. I then tried going in the completely opposite direction with this and shot them going UP. I guess you can't quite tell from the pic, but I used a syringe to shoot a steady stream into the air. Prefocused on the syringe tip and then slide it down a hair on the stand so it was out of the way.

Aww.. your set up pic isn't that bad. I know I just get used to looking for things that I think should be there.. I would have never imagined that you did it the way you did, and didn' t even notice the syringe.
Fantastic idea though. who needs gravity :)


---------------Camera, Lens, Flash stuff.. but still wanting more

Nice ones, Al!

Have you been getting good use with the Better Beamer for birds?

kawboy it's a Jobu gimbal (external link). I chose it over the others because I liked the design, the locking mechanism and I wanted to go against the grain. It's a really nice piece and now they sell one with ball bearings in horizontal and vertical tilts.

Yes, I would like to know also, I haven't seen great outcomes from mine, although I "think" my ocf cord may be faulty...

and what gimbal is that? I like the "lock/unlock" feature i see there.

A talon in the eye ball whist minding your own business is a horrible way to start the day. Fantastic captures Ed.

Yes, yes it is. Luckily I have more intelligence to duck than I do to zoom out, which is why I keep chopping off wings. Always reminds me of that shot with the eagle attacking the photographer, you just know it had to hurt like hell, but all that was going through the photographer's mind was "Save the gear, save the gear!!"...

katodog: Outstanding pics!

Photo #3 gives new, visual meaning to the phrase "Head shot!".

Can you give us the location from whence these were taken?

Thanks. I leave the camera at an angle to take the shot (Just like the picture).

Awesome composite Pridash, I really like the colors and how you put "week 3" as graffiti at the top!

Here's my attempt at a different composite...

These are the setup shots for my penne noodle shoot.
I have an idea I want to flesh out... tonight was all about seeing if it worked. Later I'll get around to fleshing it out and ironing out the "wrinkles."

I drilled some holes into some cardboard and shoved some pennes through. Then I put the penne card on top of a box that had a flash inside. The flash inside the box was gelled orange.
The flash outside the box lit the back wall, but only for certain shots.

Here's what I got tonight.

First set up shot: I'm using a plastic lamp shade as a flash difuser. I think this is what a beauty dish does, but I'm just throwing fancy terms in the air here. This picture was taken with my tablet (EXIF says f/2.8... wow!)

Second set up shot shows where my camera, flash, object to be photographed, and tethered tablet are. I was tethered using DSLR Controller to check focus. I had to disconnect when i wanted to take a shot so I could fire the flash. The second shot was taken with a dumbphone camera.

And the result is a pair of NuForce earbuds I got for Christmas. They sound fantastic, and yes, they are made of solid aluminum. I know the shot is nothing special but I've really wanted to post something in this thread for a long time. I'm sure it could use more refinement.

Very clever! I think the bowl worked great (why do I never think of things like that?).

Off topic, I think I have those same Sennheiser headphones.
