What kind of shutter speed and aperture are you guys using? I'm having a hard time freezing movement (lack of light I guess).

Would it be possible for you to take a photo of your setup?
I love drop photos.

Yours are A W S O M E :D

Thanks!

Here is the very first setup I ever did. I have altered this, but it's still pretty much the same. In this setup I took three eye droppers, mounted them to the top, and spliced them together into one hose which was attached to the baster. I was able to trigger the drops and be at the camera at the same time. I no longer use that though.

I used 1/15 second, f/18 (shooting macro), and ISO 400. I vary the flash between 1/16th power and 1/4 power depending on position. With shutter speed, I will play around in the 1/15 to 1/60 range.

The flash is what freezes the action. Shutter speed doesn't really do it.

Thanks for the picture.
What do you use now for making the drops? Just an eyedropper?
Your images are awsome. I am so far from your level hehe

I am still just using an eye dropper. I have looked into making a Mariotte Siphon. I actually bought a whole bunch of things from Home Depot to try, but the bottle I chose to use wouldn't work. I haven't gotten around to trying it again. I am relying on good old hand eye coordination. One hand on the eyedropper and one hand on the camera (mounted on a tripod).

The modifications I have made to the picture of my setup are minimal. I no longer use that baster. It was pushing too much air through and was hard to control. I did get some great shots with it, but for what I am really going for it won't work. Using an eye dropper, I can quickly release two drops and have the second drop collide with the first as the first is creating that tower like reaction from hitting the bowl of water/milk. The only other modification I have made is flash placement. I move the flash around based on what I am trying to go for and experiment with it. I haven't tried adding a second flash yet, but might soon.

Very cool shots. I haven't done any water drop shots in a long time. They are addicting.
