It’s my second day of playing with water drops and bubbles. In case you missed it, here is how my first day came along. The light setup was the same as I used it last time, only one flash in the back of the fish tank, shot through a piece of tracing paper, at 1/4 power. Camera was on tripod, with focus set approximately where the drops were falling. I didn’t have any of the fancy gear that pro water drop photographers use, such as Time Machine, so I had to do everything manually. A syringe was attached to the light stand by the fish tank, close enough for me to reach it and control the drops by hand. My other hand was on camera shutter button, ready to catch some falling drops into water. I added some blue color to the water that was in the syringe, and it produced some interesting results!
