    well, on the bright side, the lighting and shutter speed are down pat.

    agreed that you probably need to find another way to drop the object into the water, the splash is not very photogenic.

    hmm... mebbe an apple is too big? how about a strawberry, if you're looking for a red object. they're smaller, and probably wont splash too much?

    Hi Reinier, nice shot. What is your background while taking this shot? Would a well prepared black ground help to enhance the picture?

    ei..thanks....i shot this 2 ft away from a black cloth background...I think that helped clear all the clutter away...then positioned the light so that it doesnt hit any of the backgrond...

    nah mine was all pure trial and error. the angle from which i dropped it was straight down since size affects the splash too the subject can vary..mine was small strawberry and cherry tomato dropped from 20cm odd.

    wow..thanks sprintist for dropping by and giving detailed description..i guess it boils down to trial and error then....will try again next time..perhaps with a smaller subject..thanks bro.

    LOL! What i think is that maybe you have a deeper and more squarish water container. It might help in the splash part. And ask your family member to help you drop? or use a rig to drop the tomato or grape, this way it will fall straight down and you would be able to tweak how the tomato drops if you use the rig.

    OT I was thinking anyone has a water proof camera? It might be quite interesting to photograph the splash from the bottom? Just an idea.

    very interesting scientific method bro...Id like to try the "rig" idea....

    as for the shot from the bottom..Id have to say you have a creative mind...please let me know if you are able to execute this...I dont have an underwater camera so it would be difficult for me to do this..

    thanks doom

    using a glass panel? you can always shoot through it but the be careful of the angle of incidence of light to avoid flares and glares
