this below is not my setup but I did it in much the same way

Water_drop_photography_tips_CAN65.project2.6.jpg



I had a pyrex glass dish sitting on top of purple (or one other set, green cloth). My camera, on a tripod, was at a much lower angle than the one in the pic above. and water was dripping from a tap ( faucet for non- Australian or NZ people).
Then just clicking off dozens of shots ... one afternoon doing this I did some 300 shots and only kept ~ 50 to 60 of them

Because I associate low ISO numbers with stationary objects. How come there is no blurring?

ISO wont affect the still or blurriness of a moving object
ISO is the "sensitivity" ... with good light, low ISO = lower noise than high ISO

Shutter speed on the other hand will capture motion blur if it is set too slow
in this case with 160th sec and sync'ed with a flash, motion is frozen

Hm ... I've been misled. Not much of a photographer anyway. Thanks.

no probs ... been there too :smile:

on the old film cameras, you never really heard of ISO so much, ASA was the marking on the camera or film for film speed
the extremely high ISO ratings of modern cameras is a major sales gimmick, they are advertising ISO's much greater than 100,000
I have much trouble believing that it is usable without masses of noise present. The problem is, the imaging chip isn't being made
more sensitive, rather the signal and noise from the chip is just being amplified and the benefits are not really there
For most really modern DSLR cameras, less than 5 yrs old, ISO settings up to ~ 6400 before the noise starts to become an issue

PS ... sorry Zz for the divergence away from the contest .... hope people still find it useful info :smile:

160th is a shutter time, flash was probably order of magnitude shorter.
