A technically minded friend at our club Fotografie INN Fokus built a contraption to make shooting drops easier... we had some fun experimenting :-)

G'day Johann,

Nice work and nice reflection.

I have see where a glass mushroom is used as the basis for getting different shapes in the splash, and once the splash is photographed, its difficult to tell what was used originally to get the actual shape.

I have also seen where two drop of water collide and the impact causes the water to spray out in all directions giving an umbrella shape.

What was the technique was used here to get the mushroom shape?

Regards,
Craig

Hi Craig,
This was two Drops, 1 released first to create the Tower and the 2nd a slpit sec later to collide into the Tower and create the umbrella.
I have a lot more to still clean up wehre we did 3 Drops etc. Will post These here later.
But here an example:

PS: Every drop collision is unique. We spent 4 hours and I have about 450 differnet shots... Different lighting, different colour lighting, different colour water Drops etc etc.
Hours of fun ;-)

gosh ... a very late reply
I missed this when you first posted it

these are brilliant, many steps up from my efforts a few yrs back

I had never thought of colliding 2 droplets
yup, quite easy to go through a few 100 shots only to get 6 or so good ones
