Digicamfan, do you have a link to the milk drop splash photo?
It would be nice for this 'drop class' to see the grand master version. (Atleast you made me very curious, I think I know which photo you mean, but not sure though).

Default Another Drip

After seeing these pictures, I was inspired and had to try this myself.

After a few test shots, I decided to crop out the faucet. I also placed a plant and an apple behind the faucet for color. Because the drop was only a few millimeters from the front of the lens, my flash would not hit it! I had my son hold a piece of paper just off camera to use as a reflector. It was shot in fully automatic mode (except focus), handheld. F4.0, at a 40th of a second, Sony 707. I did some cropping in Photoshop but otherwise, it is untouched.

Mathilde,

I like the warm color of your drops and the dark background. I see you've added a bit of light from the back. Very nice!

Darrell

Darrel, thanks.

It is quite interesting to notice while we all took the example photo as start point we ended up with many different styles.

Your success in accomplishing same style as the original example ,shows you have not just the eye and knowledge but also patient to follow it up all the way through. The plants work very well in the image.

And yes I used a of backlight to make the drops spark.
