My 700th Deviation and it's just Plain Water

I've been exploring the effects of flash power setting on motion blur, it might be of interest to you www.photosbykev.com/wordpress/photography/tips-and-trick/...

Canon 40D and 100mm macro lens
2 x 580Ex flash guns used for illumination
1/20 sec@ f11 iso 100

Water droplets delivered via a Stopshot controlled solenoid valve. Camera and flashes triggered by a IR beam and StopShot programmable trigger.

580Ex @ 1/64 with snoot on the right aimed at the background with blue gel.
580Ex @ 1/64 with snoot and red gel aimed at the droplets from the left.

Absolutely stunning. I love how the reddish light contrasts with the blue. It really brings out the shape of the water droplets.

Amazing work. :heart:

Congratulations on 700!!! :wow:

What a worthy shot to use for that! :)

Did this take 3 drops or four? I'm totally fascinated by the differences in the color when you use a gel versus the dye and reflecting printout behind. Again, congratulations! :)

Two droplets, the first has bounced and released two small droplets off the top of the column, the 2nd droplet hits the highest released droplet

Do you use colour lights or you change the colour after taking the photo? Sorry for the question, but I can't explain myself how you get those incredible colours! How do you do it? Awesome...

Hi, none of the images are colour manipulated :) I use coloured filter gels over the flashguns and carefully placed pieces of card to stop the colour from one gun affect the others.
