Thanks, y'all! This was my first attempt at this sort of thing. I shot over 125 and these were the only 2 worth keeping. My arm is killing me from holding the eye dropper. I hate water.

Those are some great shots.

I've been meaning to try doing something like that for a while.

Here's a link to a cheap kit that you assemble yourself that has a trigger tied to an adjustable timer. It allows you to adjust the time delay after the water drop passes through the sensor to fire a flash, it should allow for more consistant results. When I have time to I going to order one to try out.

Thanks! And, thanks for the URL. If I were to shoot droplets as my main subject, I might invest in this little rig. But, I tend to jump around a lot. I just had a bug to try it and keep it as inexpensive as possible. I will concede that my mind started to jump to "if I had an IV drip setup, I could......"

Here's my high-end setup for these shots: A plastic dish placed on a conveniently-grabbed magazine, eye dropper, onboard flash shot with a 14-42mm kit lens and the cheapest +4 lens/filter I could find, wired remote shutter release. That's it.
