I've been experimenting with the lighting to try to make the paint more vibrant. I used a blacklight on this shot, it makes the colours a bit brighter even if the flash stobe cancels a lot of it out.

Ohhhhh, the black works well. Unfortunately not had time to play and working away until nearly Xmas now. However, I will get around to the challenge. Congrats on the EC, but as Arnie says "I'll be back" Wink)

You've obviously perfected getting lower down almost level with the drop, very interesting, not managed to perfect that angle yet.

Would be interested in how your set up looks compared with the one I described for the water drops. If you want to upload some images of the setup I can post a blank image and you can use the mods rather than waste a days post. Let me know if you want to, if you don't that's fine.

I took a quick photo of my setup and posted a link to it in one of my previous photos comments section. Here it is again for those that missed it. On this shot the backgound is black Formica rather than the white in the picture. I get the colours by mixing paint from the craft store with water. It's the paint that is usually used for painting those cast plaster/ceramic craft pieces.

I'd be happy to answer any more questions about the setup if anyone has any.
