I was inspired to try this after reading over the thread inTempus started with the water drops. Basically, I was reading what him and Derrel were talking about in terms of settings for the camera. None of it made sense to me. I went and tried it with completely different settings and techniques then they were talking about. I am the type to just get the basics, and then go try it. So today I decided to try a very cliche shot that everyone on flickr does. I have never tried anything like this, so it was a fun experience. First the set up. The hardest part was the timing. I used my D90 set up on a tripod about 3-4 feet from the table. I practiced TWO times with a cup of water. Then this was the third attempt. I feel pretty lucky to have gotten this shot just after two practices. But basically all I did was have the camera on remote mode, and used the ML-L3 fire the camera. I timed the 'drop' with the pre-flash. Thus I had the sb-600 mounted on my camera. Here are the settings I went with. Exposure: 1/4000 sec Aperture: f/2.8 Focal Length: 50 mm ISO Speed: 200 My flash was on TTL and I had it at -2.0 Here is the result, I would love to here what you guys think. BTW, I know the background is distracting, but I just wanted to try and get a good frozen shot of the liquid in mid-air. Next time i'll try to compose it better.
