Lockdown Photography

During lockdown I dug out my water drop kit and started to play with it again. Some of the shapes achieved are amazing and not visible to the naked eye.

Water-drop collision photography is fascinating and not easy. I use a single valve water-drop kit to create abstract images.

Many water-drop variables are measured in milliseconds - water drop size, delay, camera trigger. Other variables are dropper to receptacle height, size and shape of the receptacle, viscosity of the liquid in the dropper, plus the ever changing viscosity of the liquid in the receptacle. All combine to create some amazing water patterns, of which no two are ever the same.

Patience is a must because, very often, nothing of note is produced at the end of a full day taking hundreds and hundreds of images. I've attached just one of my successes.

Very good image, what lighting were you using? I was doing the same in the last few weeks (I am still self isolating) with water or milk, I preferred full fat milk. Some of my pictures are in my portfolio.

As the trigger could not be tethered effectively to my Sony a7 - the timing could not be synchronised- I was getting about a 95% failure rate.

I have now sold the SplashArt but could now do some more with a plastic bag full of liquid.
