    Hi all, after seeing TJ K's thread and the video that was posted I had to give it a shot. Took about 200 shots and these two seamed to be the best. Trying to get get the timing down was tricky but a lot of fun. Doing this kind of shooting keeps me from thinking about how far off spring and summer are. Please let me know what you think, thanks. Frank

    Nice! You did a damn good job. The color in 1 is great. I need to get a macro to really get in close enough and not get the edge of any of the containers in the picture. Next time also try to get at like the level of the water and see how that works. I wish I could use my extension tube but it stops the lens all that way down so the shutter speed would be really long.

    Thanks everyone! TJ, I did think about getting lower but not until I shot close to 150 shots. Thats ok though it gives me something else to do another day. Darkhunter I used an sb-600 off camera and various colors of card stock that I bounced the flash off of.

    Ya I only shot about 50 and I thought that was a lot. I was doing it kinda late and the beeping of the flash was getting everyone a bit irriatated lol but I didn't want to shut the sound off because I would never remember to turn it back on. I'm going to have to try some more though. Did you use f/8 1/250 with flash at 1/16 like the vid said or did you do something else?
