Nice shot Imaginat.

I have always tried to get a shot like this but it never comes out that good. I guess I have to practice more. May I ask what type of set up did you use?

Thank you, Nightfighter.
This was my first try at this. I actually shot 200-300 images. I put the camera on my counter, hung a piece of black velvet about a foot behind the wine glass of milk. Put a pen where the milk drop would fall, focused my Fuji S2 Pro, and then started dropping milk from a dropper....and kept shooting away.....then looked to see if I captured anything. I got a lot of shots of just the top of a wine glass of milk:-). My camera was about 12 inches away, I had a 35-80mm 1:4-5.6 Nikkor lens on my camera. I used the camera's flash. That's about it.

That was cool. It was worth the 200 shots.

Reminds me of Harold Edgerton's works on milk droplets.

Well done!

I agree, very well done. It looks like the glass would overflow once the action stopped!

Thank you for all the kind words. I had a lot of fun while learning a lot, too.

I am always so impressed with droplet photos...too chicken to give it a try though. Great capture.
