Thanx. But a shot through the glass wont work because of the flash, so it was full of water. I put some CDs in front of it to have something where I can put the camera...

Hi Again!

Taxus, set you camera un macro, and flash (no auto flash), and try to get the timing of the drops. The flash will freeze the moment.
To get practice, try to shoot the drop falling in a Glass or something else....this one was my better, but many practice with glasses or another recipe, will help.
I shooted only 4 before this. But trying to get a better one, I shooted about 400 more, and no better results.

Once you get the timing, your drops will be in synchro with your "premature shooting", meanwhile all the shoots will be without the drop!

hi djuggler,
i just want to show how i took the pictures. you can see the construction in the drawing (i put some paper with a small hole for the lense in front of the camera to protect the camera from the water) and i used an additional desk lamp to lighten up the scene a bit. try to make the drops fall all the time. then set your camera to manual focus and go as near as you can, now you need a pencil or something to set up the focus. just hold the pencil where the drops fall to have something you can focus. now try to find the right distance for the camera (dot change the manual focus, make sure that you go as near as you can). if you have the focus, set up your camera. i played around with the flash, shutter speed etc. that depends a lot on the reflection of the paper you put in the background. then set your camera to fast-shooting mode (you can make about 5-8 pictures till it gets too slow). now shoot! if the pictures take too long, wait a few seconds till the lamp stops blinking and then shoot the next series. thats it, now the only thing you need is to catch a drop



hope that helps, wish you luck.
