Default Milk Splash.

Took about 20 minutes to do this seeing how I was alone and was using the cameras timer. Didn't turn out very well.

Nikon D50 - Nikkor 70-300mm G.

Unfortunately you are limited here by a few things. Firstly using the timer must be killer LOL, I would get a remote shutter release, the glass is out of focus which doesn't help and the shutter is too slow to freeze the action properly, external flash is potentially the only way to resolve this, or get outdoors/a source of good light.

Yep timer didnt do you any favors and your focued on the wall.
Even so the motion of the milk would need a much higher shutter speed or flash to freeze motion if it were in focus.

Just dont give up. Its not that hard. Fast shutter speed of 2000th with external flash and up close about 1.5 inches away. I drop the milk with an eye dropper into a dark blue bowl. Dropper in right hand, release button in the left hand. I posted some more shots from this mornings shoot in the Close-up forum.

you need a strobe, its not about shutter speed, but its about how fast the flash is, go look at my shots, they are like 1/200th a second, with the strobe. the trick is to get exsposure about 2 or 3 stops under ambient light, so the flash itself catches the action, not the shutter.
