Playing with drops and FZ35
 
Got the idea from this winner of the day . Did it with water and syrup.

Flash on, manual focus. F5, 1/320 shutter, 80 ISO. No burst, at the end I knew roughly when to push the button.

Those are stunning shots - all super clear and in focus, really well done. Just some questions as I am well impressed and what to pick your brains on your set up. Did you zoom in on the water, if so, what zoom were you on?? Did you have the water in a glass bowl?? What did you use as to drop the water with? Really looking forward to your response. The last one reminds me of a jelly fish, love it.

These are really neat shots! What an excellent idea to use syrup! There was a similar series in the "closeup" section of this forum:

1: No, I tried it, but found without zoom better for close up, and for the flash (which was +2/3, pretty strong)

2: Yes, a bowl with around 15-20cm diameter, a glass was to small to make the nice ripples in the water

3: At first a small spoon, but hard to control and large drops. A Syringe with a 1mm opening did the trick.

Hope that answers them all, if not then fire away ;)

Now I am going to see what will happen if I use a oily solution combined with the syrup.

Rafal,

very good shots.

My favorites are #2 and #3, but I think you can improve them by using a plain (maybe black) background.

Cheers,

Stefan

Oil does not work for me, guess its all in those hydrogen bridges. Here is one with black background (a sweater). Turned out very well if I may say so.

Rafal,

really a great shot.

The black background makes it really excellent.

Do work in a lab, or are you also a scientist?

Cheers,

Stefan

I love the black background shot - great work.

RafalW Mar 3, 2011 4:29 PM

Thanks Stefan, still gonna try to make the black noise free.

I'm a Biology student if you are referring to those hydrogen bridges, but if your referring to the syringe, I got it when they pulled my wisdom tooth to clean the hole with salty water.

Haha,

I am a PH.D. in biology!

Maybe, when you are in Winterberg the next time, we can meet.

Cheers,

Stefan
