Hello Widowmaker,

I love these water shots, what camera are you using and how did you do that , I would like to try this myself.

How did you get it so blue?

Hi Kevin,

I used a 10D with 550EX Flash. I used a blue piece of clother that was fairly sheer to get the color cast. I shot high speed sync so the background is not visible.

That is pretty cool looking, could you elaborate a bit on how you did this I'm still not understanding. What about settings on the camera?

Well at first I said used high speed sync but now I recall I did not. I was at 1/60 shutter at F/16. As far as setting up I had large glass bowl and shot down on the water at about 15 degrees. I had water dripping from a tube in a fixed position above the bowl. I found where the water was hitting and then placed the tip of a pencil on the surface of the water at that point and then manually focused. From then on its must start the dripping and start shooting.

I never tire of these when they're well done which this one is. I like the second with the droplet ball suspended. Very nice.
