Taken in the bathroom sink, the red is my bed sheet. I was going to put them in the wash, what difference would it make if they were already wet?
I filed up a syringe (borrowed from printer ink refills) and dropped the water from a great height. Lots of wasted shots, but it's digital so it's ok. It's a shame the only flash I can use (and have) is the one on the camera. It would have been nice to have it firing from the left/right to add shadow.

Don't be too hard on your own work. They look very nice (especially considering the shooting/lighting conditions you were working under). I agree that #3 is the best -- perhaps because the shots with other splashes are a little oversharpened??? Also interesting is the red background. In a couple of the shots (particularly the last one) you can really see the grain of the fabric-- makes it kind of unique IMO.


P.S. This is my 100th Post! Whoopee!

I love them all!! The one looks silky but they all have a great look. Great imagination!!!!!!:-)

Would it work to set up a flashlight on the side of the sink or to have a soft table lamp directing light across? Just wondering.

That is a result of the flash. Everything is slightly out of focus really.

It would look better because the flash would give me shadows rather than a flat image with hotspots in the centre of everyhit..g Unfortunately the flash is bolted to me camera and can't be moved. :lol:
I would use a lamp, but I'm not going to chance water and electricity with this set up. I'm trying to plan something else in my head though.

Thanks for looking.
