Hi I am new to the forum - I thought I'd share a few of my water droplet collision images with you.

Very well done, Ian!  Someday I need to get serious about trying to do this.  Thanks for sharing these.

What great timing!  How many shots did you take before you got what you wanted?

A lot of shots taken!  However not how you might think!  I use a special timing box that controls the release of the two droplets and then fires tha flash to capture the image.  It take quite a bit of trial and error to set the time between the first and second droplet.  The second drop needs to hit the splash coming up from the first drop.  Then we have to set the delay for how long after the first drop is released before the flash goes off.  Once we have the settings dialed in for the particular levels of water, almost every shot taken give a collision image.  Lots of shots taken during set up, no many once the settings ate known.

WHEW!  Thanks for that explanation.  I guess I won't try to catch water drops any time soon.  :D  This sure proves the difference between a "picture taker" (me) and a "photographer" (you and so many others here.)

Don't confuse captuing water droplets (single drop) with what I was doing with water droplet collisions.  Splashes from a single drop is a breese by comparison.  As I am sure others here will tell you.
