NEW to FORUM - Hop I'm posting in the right spot // Took this shot of mushroom growing between the cracks in our sidewalk. Didn’t notice the stem at first but after closer look, it’s a face. The nose is one of them very small red bugs and the eyes and mouth is just dirt.

Bit more playing with the drip rig... got a week off work to play with it and fine tune it seeing as the weather looks fairly rubbish... couple of images from the initial setup where I need to rethink the lighting a bit as its a little gappy... then the batteries went flat :)

Refining the edge of my old (I've had it for 30 years) Chinese cleaver. I still have a bit to go but it's getting there.

Interested in seeing your setup :)

My current setup is based on the controller kits from a company called HiViz... the drip controller and flash trigger come in kit form and the setup looks like this...

Splash controller (left) and flash controller (right)

IMAGE: http://tuffty.co.uk/photos/Photography/splash/20171020-96dpi-20171020_180527.jpg

I have limited room in my loft/office (still part way through conversion) so the rig is as big as I can make it...

IMAGE: http://tuffty.co.uk/photos/Photography/splash/20171020-96dpi-20171020_180522.jpg

I am planning on making a better jig to be able to position my flashes in the limited space I have...

IMAGE: http://tuffty.co.uk/photos/Photography/splash/20171021-96dpi-20171021_220043.jpg

I have also been playing with the nozzles as the drops were inconsistent... the nylon nozzles come with the HiViz valves but have read they can lead to inconsistency so added a small piece of brake pipe which seems to have improved things...

IMAGE: http://tuffty.co.uk/photos/Photography/splash/20171021-96dpi-20171021_173846.jpg

Last night I used a clear pyrex bowl rather than the tray and back lit as before in the flash configuration in the pic above... bit happier with the results this time and used a bit of yellow food colour in the drop fluid...

Need to play with side lighting too but waiting on some more frosted perspex to diffuse the flashes plus I need to modify the rig to allow me to flexibly position the flash guns on the side...

I haven't had much chance to play with this setup as yet and I seem to be constantly evolving it... I have plans to build another drip controller that will allow multiple valves to be triggered individually... the HiViz setup will trigger up to three valves but only simultaneously... the new controller I have in mind will allow me to use a different colour per valve and alter the timing for each one... I can still use the HiViz flash controller though

really fantastic stuff - thanks for posting the setup - love to see human ingenuity at work


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
