Wanted to get the collision above the ripple in the reflection.
The colour separation is achieved by dropping yellow water into red it doesn't mix in the first rebound.
Thanks for looking.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my at home in my office in a darkened room.
Time
Since you have to darken the room, it can be done at any time a day.
Lighting
I use Stop shot studio It is all done with valves an (in my case 3 flash guns) I can control with a timing device called "Drop shot studio". The photo is taken on bulb mode via remote in a dark room. Basically, I open the shutter, activate the valves and flash via computer then close the shutter. You go through allot of shots to get a good one, thinks you do and call fun!? This is hideous business, if you don't have a lot of patience or time not sure if it is a good idea. It sure gets you hooked ones you start.
Equipment
Nikon D 7000 and 3 flash guns. Stop shot studio.
Inspiration
I have seen a lot of those sort of photos on the net and in magazines and wanted to give it a go.
Editing
Very little post processing is done here. Just a bit of cleaning up (stray water drops etc.) and a little boost in contrast.
In my camera bag
This was shot on my Nikon D7000with a 1050mm lens attached. The perfect lens for this sort of macro photography. Other that I used my Giotto tripod, 3 flash guns and some patience
Feedback
If you thinking about that, keep in mind it requires allot of patience and time before you get anything half descent. In some stage I thought I my ware out my camera. Other than that, Just have fun. Norbert
