      I haven’t seen this trademark of yours for a while David! Simply brilliant! The last one looks like a jumping spider!

      My favourite is the third one! It resembles a diver quite a lot.

      Really amazing and captivating, David!  Am simply gob-smacked at the shutter speed.  Until now, I have thought the speed of 1/4000 sec on my camera was great, but now …. !

      All of them are insanely beautiful! My favorite is the fourth one, it looks like an abstract sculpture.

      I was just starting to think about trying this type of photography, but I think I will save some time and just enjoy yours instead.  Great shots!  (I also really like the background colors)

        Thanks Frank. It is a rewarding/frustrating/addictive past time. Great for those rainy days when you need a creative outlet.

        The backgrounds are simple gradients that I produce in PS, and print onto A4 sheets.

        If you are going to have a go, and want any help or advice, just reach out. I don’t profess to know everything, but have been photographing drops since 1982. I even ran a workshop via zoom a few weeks back and everyone on it came away with some keepers.

      An excellent series, David!   It’s a look into another level of existence.    I really like the 2nd image because it reminds me of the bacterium Acineta, one of my favorite shapes.

      • #449176

        Well, I learned something today Anne! I had to look up bacterium Acineta, and you are right!

        Thanks

      Holy cow! 1/19000 of a second? That’s like a quantum level time slice David. Amazing that a manmade device can open and close a shutter that fast! Pics are simply stunning and the thing about this style of photography as that no two are even remotely similar (or do you weed out similar shots 🙂 ).

      • #449479

        Thanks Graham. To be fair the shutter speed is 1/125 sec, the flash speed in 1/19000 sec.

        Most images are unique, but I do weed out a few that are too similar…

          Ah I see. Still, its a hell of a flash speed!

      Been seeing these on my feed lately, @dchester1001 – great stuff.

    • #449480

      Thanks Rob @admin. Are you heading north for the winter this year?

      I don’t think you’ll let us diseased southerners across the border, @dchester1001 😉
