Light drop

By tonyheps  
So far experiments with this technique are most effected by the lighting - this one being lit by to flashguns behind some coloured translucent paper with some diffusion between. I've/we've yet to get great variation in shapes. Hopefully that will come with time - watch this space!

Your lighting is superb and you have a good collision and reflection, beautifully captured.
May I suggest a 5% Glycerine addition to the water in the drop tank, but continue using plain water in the catch tank. The glycerine tends to control the water and not make it splash so much and the splashes that do occur are more pleasing.

Love it - I know how hard this effect is to capture as we were given it in an assignemt in my recent photo examinations! I love the colours in it as well. I ended up trying a method out of a photo mag where I put water droplets of various sizes on the 'wrong' side of a c.d., using additional lights to capture the colours, which then reflect in the droplets! (in my portfolio)Smile
