Looks like fun, so if we photographers find shooting water drips fun, does that make us boring? Very nice set of shots.

Hi Bynx,

Great series of lovely photos of a simple but very well executed arrangement. I love it... and have always wanted to do such a series, but simply have no excuse that I haven't except I basically never get bored (enough)!! :-)

Good use of focus, shutter speed and aperture, etc. What camera and settings did you use (if you don't mind sharing?) I'm particularly interested in how many frames per second...!

Cheers

Paul

No problem sharing any knowledge. I used my one and only Fufi S700. Each shot is 1/1000 second at F13.6 and ISO of 100. I used the built in flash as my light source. This was not a single drop for the sequence but each frame is a single shot and single drop. I just put them in order in Photoshop. No other manipulations.

I was just going to ask about this, as when first time saw them, I've got feeling that it was some speed camera used as it's really look like one drop in different time frame, good job in finding right ones!

Wonder if you're using manual focus for doing such shots or put something on the path of drop and focus on it each time(I've used last one, as manual focus doesn't provide good precision)?

For controlled conditions like this I always use manual focus. Im only a few inches from the tap and its a bit of a hassle. If I want to check the shot I have to refocus each time. When Im sure its ok then I shoot a bunch.
Just as a side note .... in each drop the image is upside down. You can see the stainless steel sink, the tap the wall and even the water drip reflected in the drop. I think its pretty cool and the image is nice and sharp. The tap was set to a constant drip so I didnt have to waste time waiting for the next one.
