Q: Good tripods??

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

After 20+ attempts, managed to get some decent (I mean recognizable)captures!

How this was done for my friends out there who want to a crack at it:

- Milk in a shallow plate,

- Goodies to drop in milk (i tried, olives,grapes,berries etc.).

- placed the grape in the milk and took an auto focus, changed that to manual in order to capture the point of impact,

- flash light off the camera placed to the left,

- tripod with the camera on remote cable,

- dropped the object from around 6 inches high,

- crossed my legs (cos one hand was holding the remote and the other the grape ;-) otherwise i would have preferred to cross my fingers..,

- timed to press the shutter release at the time of impact..,

- note: make sure your lens has a protection filter on as the splashes might be a bit messy..,

and hey presto!!! got some keepers!

try it folks.., its a lot of fun and teaches you a lot about light n shutter control (plus how to clean up all the mess that the wifey won't!!).

More of my attempts can be see at my site on the following link:

Enjoy n cheers,

plus don't forget to let me know how your attempt went!
