    I saw a video in youtube about taking pictures of drops. I tried myself at home and I think looks good ...

    Pretty good for your first try. Get your angle lower, though, so you are seeing the drop from the side.

    Thanks. You've already got the basics down just by capturing the drop, so now you just need to try different angles & lighting.

    This was taken using a clear tupperware bowl with the flash off camera and the flash head (covered with purple film) pushed right up to the bowl underneath the lens.
