Canon 40D and 100mm macro lens, full frame uncroppped image
2 x 580Ex flash guns used for illumination

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

Snoots removed some water detail is visible but both flashguns zoomed in to reduce the light on the surface

Hi Bugs,

yes I meant 1/10 second :) it is the flash duration that freezes the droplet so, in a drakened room, the shutter could of been open for seconds if I wanted it to be without affecting the shot

" it is the flash duration that freezes the droplet"....
How could i think about it earlier :D
Thanks a lot for this explaination Kev !! i'll try this 4 sure ;)
the only point is to get the flash precisely when the droplet is "boucing" :p
