[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The second droplet collides with the spout of the first droplet.

3sec exposure in dark room, the gap between droplets and the timing of the flash programmed on a StopShot controlller - flash set on minimum power (1/32) which gives a flash duration of 1/10,000 sec

The first droplet passes through an IR beam which triggers the sequence.

Getting the reflection takes a lot of trial and error

Hallo Jack,
this is very good - I like this Moment and the nice reflection in the water.
I also would like to do such shots - but I think there are many things to buy to control the waterdrops? Is this difficult?
Thanks for any words.
Have a nice day.

Your patience and perseverance certainly paid off. These shots are good enough to hang on the wall.

Nice Shot!
