...so blooming hard :-(
A great attempt i had ago at this and it took time do you use the manual focus way? what you do is get a biro lid and put it where the drops are landing and the manual focus on the lid and then take it away and the drops should be always in focus and you can get some really good shots i hope this helps

Beautifully done! It's all about timing Gary - not sure of your method for releasing the drops but I use a freezer bag suspended from a frame - put a pin ***** in the bag and you'll get a regular dripping flow which then aids with the timing. I use the same focus method as HarvetSquires mentions.
It's a really attractive shot this!
yea that's the exact way i do it Andy....but struggling to get a collision ... any hints!!
With the bag about a foot above the drop site, I normally take the shot as my eyes see the drop leaving the bag - then press the shutter release - with my reaction time I am normally fairly close to the mark - just a bit of tweaking thereafter. It is a lot of trial and error - keep plugging away at it - I know it's frustrating but the results and the feeling of achievement when you get it make it worthwhile!
Nice big droplet you've got there Gary.
Great image, like the tone. Keep going at it. Trial and error. Should get some fantastic images.
Works well! These always look really tricky to do.
The steady drip of knowledge Gary, looks good to me.
cheers Phil , Ed, Sue & Dougie
Beautifully done Gary
