I have just started photographing water drops and I need to be able to clamp a shelf or something similar to hold the water supply to a horizontal pipe - any idea of what clamp to use?

This is the horizontal part of a free standing clothes hanger. Ideal to be able to move it about above my shallow container of water.

I saw one setup where the shooter used a rubber glove for his water source, he cut a drip hole in the one finger. You could easily attach that to your crosspiece without too much difficulty with a simple clamp or by means of a string. No need for a shelf.

That's about what I did... I hung a ziploc bag from the bottom of a tripod... popped a hole in the bottom with a needle... good to go.

I have been using a tube with a valve (from wine making) and a bottle - this way I can control rate of flow. I need the bottle to stand on something and hoped to put it on the crosspiece.

I hang a ziplock bag from my dining room chandelier, so I can't help with that. I can recommend that you get a white board and wrapping paper to bounce the flash off of for some interesting colors. If you get good with timing/controlling it, you can also put images behind the camera for shots like this. (see link)

...for shots like this. (not mine)

Facedodge,

Those are beautiful photos. Will you please give us the link to the website from where those come? We are not allowed to post photos that aren't "ours" on this forum but I would hate for us to lose this example for others to see.

We (and you) have all agreed to the following rule (Section 1, rule #5):
"You agree to post only content that you have copyright for, or with written permission from the copyright owner."

If you have questions, please see here: Rules

Sorry about that. I'm new here. It seems links to other peoples work are okay. This photo was by Markus Reugels.

It's German, so use Google Chrome to translate.

It is always OK to link to other's work but not OK to post another's photos.

Please edit your original post to delete those photos.

No worries, though... I think a lot of people who are new here do that. I think the owner of the forum has two reasons:
1. To respect to ownership of everyone's work (especially yours) and
2. To protect themselves from copyright lawsuits.

I'm glad your here and sharing such great, thought-provoking work.

Dwain
