Rayfo thanks for more suggestions. A black ski mask! Yeah that outta do it!
Well I'm up to four of the little Godox flashes and one big one, but thought if I flashed
the drops I'd get highlights......maybe flash them from behind like we do in splash photography
dispersing the light through a cutting board.
I'll keep playing as time permits.
You may laugh at the black ski-mask, MM, but I'll have you know that my wife always felt that I looked best covered in black in a fully blacked-out room!
Flashing the drops from behind will surely illuminate you and the room behind you, and exacerbate the reflections on the drops problem. No?
