A couple of images dropping a fake ice cube into a glass of coloured water in the back bedroom recently. This was a lot of fun!

Capturing the splash at different stages was very nice too.

Hi photobug7d.

I setup a high speed strobe directly in front of the camera, then place the glass in between the strobe & camera. Drop an ice cube (fake), then release the shutter at the critical point (very hit and miss, takes many practice attempts).

The liquid is water with blue food dye.

A very simple setup in my back bedroom. :)

So the flash is behind the glass on your shot? I dont understand the setting in front of glass then camera in between the two? Also shot on a mirror?

Hi photobug7d

Yes, the camera was pointed directly at the flash, which was in a softbox diffuser to spread the light.

The glass is sitting on an old piece of perspex that was from a wall mounted picture that we were throwing away and some plain white A3 paper underneath the perspex, this gave the effect of a mirror.

I will have a look and see if I took a picture of the setup on my phone, that may be the easiest way to explain.
