Delicious looking results! So clever your use of the pony clamps: I'm stealing that idea. :)

I'll come out and play with some water drop photos. The setup was three flashes at 1/128 power arranged around (and above) the drip apparatus on a old enlarger stand.

While the physical setup is straight-forward the time intervals is the real learning curve. The difference of a couple of milliseconds (yes .001 of a second) between the drop falling and the camera firing makes a large difference. Lots of room for learning (or swearing depending on the day)

The results are:

The difference between photos even with the same settings can be large and the amount of surprise with each photo. Also need to work on the depth of field to increase overall sharpness. Really appreciated the review function to see what came out.

Any questions, please feel to contact me.
Rick

When I saw that my hummingbird feeder was attracting a swarm of bees than what it intended for, I thought I might as well shoot some bees in flight. The set up is quite simple: Canon 5D IV with Macro 100mm lens on Hi-Hat Tripod; a placement of petunia flowers directly below the feeder; 3 Flashpoint flashes; and Canon TC-80N3 Timer Remote Control, so I have less chance of being stung by bees. Focus in the center of the flower.

SS: 1/200
Aperture: f/9
Focal Length: 100mm
ISO: 100

Each flash: Manual; 1/16

Thank you. The lens used for the photo is Sigma 150-600C, 3 flashes employed are Flashpoint Zoom Li-on R2 TTL On-Camera Flash Speedlight For Canon (receiver built-in), and the Flashpoint R2 ETTL 2.4 GHz Wireless Flash Trigger.

I'm very envious of your setup, SYS .... and the results ! On top of that, I'm a fan of hummingbirds, so you're really speaking to me. :-)

Thank you very much, Hammer ~

Since the previous set up, I changed to another set up that seems to draw more hummers and at the same time more convenient for me. The whole set up is now on my deck with the pergola, so I don't even have to walk over to the yard to set things up. :-)
