Setup shot. Taken with a Canon Rebel XTi with 100mm Macro lens. Lighting was a Alienbees B800 triggered with Cybersyncs.

Got the drop photo bug from seeing great images here and elsewhere ...

Cognisys StopShot kit, custom made "aquarium", flash with color filters through frosted
glass from behind, twin macro flash used to illuminate drop zone, made a mount for the
drip tube using an aluminium profile and stands from my studio flashes, food coloring ...
... and a lot of tweaking ...

QUOTED IMAGE

Here are some pictures from the first night, not perfect but I'm quite happy I got these
already. Now I need to work on the technique and think of something creative other than
the usual shots that have been done already.

Thanks for the kind comments! I don't want to hog the thread, but I'm kind of enthusiastic about this new toy and can't help
showing two more from the second night's attempts, then I'll shut up about it for real. :) These I think turned out really nice:

Anders, the thing I'm wondering is about the colors. Blue, yellow and green. How?

The way I see it would be you're flashing the background who is yellow, water in the bowl is green and you drop blue droplets?


Hi, I'm David.

It's actually only blue (in the water drops) and yellow (from the filter on the flash), and it combines to green. The water in the tray is probably also slightly blue from all the drops, but it's mainly the drops themselves that have a deeper blue color.

Anders, those last ones are the best yet. I love the detail you've captured, such as the tiny ripples that run back across the water sheet from the breaking edge. I'd be interested to know what lens and aperture you're using - the depth of field is good.


Mark.
