After a few attempts at trying out different methods, (and after purchasing an off shoe flash trigger), I finally have some water droplet shots that I'm satisfied with!
Happy viewing!!

Thanks for the compliments! Glad that you guys like them :D

In fact, #1-#9 was from my latest attempt. And #10 was from my very first attempt, when I still have not gotten my off shoe.

Hmmm, it has been 3 years since I last did this. I suddenly felt inspired to try again, but with an increased level of difficulty. After a few trials and errors, I finally figured out the set up that I wanted and got a few successful shots out of hundreds of shots. In my next attempt (probably next month), I would be adding some colours to it.

Thanks! It happens when the first droplet bounces back up and collides with the second droplet that is coming down.

I tried many times, and kept changing my set ups. For this final set up which produced these photos, I think I took around 500 shots in total? It is one shot fired per squeeze of drips (usually 2-3 drips in a row) from the dropper. Success rate was really really low, but it's really satisfying to see a successful shot.

congrats for such satisfying shot.
#11 & 13 is fantastic shot with great timing of the water rather still that can see the underneath of the droplets from the water reflection clearly.
keep it up :)

Saw the exif, mostly taken with 1/200 f16. Always though such shots need fast shutter to freeze the motion. I tried before but not too successful. Nice shots!

1/200 is definitely not fast enough to freeze the droplets. U need the power of flash to do so.

cos 1/200 is probably his cameras max sync speed. its not a choice, try it again with off cam flash it'll freeze the movement
