I've been trying to perfect waterdrop pictures for ages (not using timing equipment hasnt made it easy) and I realized that if you get down to water level that whatever is in the background of the picture is refected on the surface of the water an trough the water drop.
I've done loads of different versions, most with union jack flags and from this I found that using straight lines work really well as the water bends the lines really effectively.
So I printed out this coloured stripey background, put it behind my water bowl and with a iced bag of water thawing above to produce a slow steady drip I sat down with my finger on my cameras trigger and waited for the perfect drop.
