Another drop shot from last year. Pink coloured milk being dropped into blue coloured water. I used a turkey baster, hand held, and squeezed it hard so the drops would fall in quick succession, at the same time opening the shutter via a cable release.
I used a ring flash attached to a 90mm macro lens, with a slave flash set to one side of the bowl, plus white cardboard surrounds for reflectors to even the lighting a bit.
It’s a very hit and miss method and one that results in maybe a 10% success rate. I do know I delete most of the shots I take and that I can spend hours trying to get a few good shots. (Not to mention the sore back from bending over the set-up) I think next year I might invest in proper timers and drip controllers and a proper table, even if it’s just to avoid the chronic back ache I get.(lol)
Canon EOS 500D. 90mm macro lens. Ring flash as master flash and Canon Speedlite 430EX as slave.
The only PS work done is to clean up spots that appeared from splashes on the lens, plus the usual levels adjustments.
