September 17, 2017 More water drop photography

Chris Ang suggested using colored water - so I added some green food coloring.  The results are much more dramatic.  I'm shooting at 1/100, flash at 1/128 intensity (short flash pulse), ISO 100, f/25 (to maximize depth of field)

A drop entering the water and the splash response projecting upward around the drop

A fully developed splash "crown" 

Two drops falling into a crater formed by the 1st drop falling into the water

Interesting distortion of the drop falling into the crater

My focus plumb bob - a needle superglued to a small pin

A closeup of the thread and pin.  I tape the thread to the side of the outlet of the drop maker and focus on the point where the pin touches the water.
