    It took me about 300 shots between last night (at about 2:30am :)) and today (about 30 mintues ago) to get this shot. This is my kitchen sink. I'm very happy with this one. What do you think?

    I used the "red eye" flash on my digi cam, so it was not as powerful as the normal flash to highlight the water, but not overpower the photo, as well as allow me to lower the shutter speed a LOT!. With the flash on i was at appeture of 4.0 i think, and shutter speed of 1/1500th of a second.

    i totally dig this photo- really cool stop motion...

    how did you set it up? not cam settings, i mean the actual shoot itself?

    i gotta say, you have quite a creative flare!

    all i did was close the blinds to the window in front of the sink to lessen the glare on the water...filled the sink up a majority of the way, then put the faucet on to drip maybe 2 drips per seconds. :)
