I've posted this in the close-up forum but I thought I'd shove this one here to. The aim was to photograph water hitting a cd. To do that you need a fast shutter. And for a fast shutter you need lots of light. I was taken in a bathroom with the window behind the cd. The cd was on a set of steps in the bath. There wasn't enough light to get the speed I wanted so I had to use the camera's flash, hence the hotspots.
It came out alright I think. It was my first attepmt at anything like this. I've got a few others from the series I may post later.

sweet stuff dude

the problem with flash, is you usually can't go past 1/250th...or the rare 1/500th..

dude...find a time of day..wear you have strong light coming through the window....

there's no better way to get fast shutters than with the suns light!

great shot dude! awesome timing...can't imagine what you'd do with a dSLR...lol, it would be unreal!

It faces north east so it never gets any. I'll be able to do it outside in the summer.

There is another way to get the light. Take a look at this.

Now, where did I put my steps and screwdriver? I've got a light to take off the wall....
