Droplet Photography

By David Goodell

During these Covid times it is helpful to find ways to expand our photographic skills. I found one. I purchased the Pluto Trigger, Pluto Valve, and Magic Arm. The Pluto Trigger has lots of applications – time lapse, star trails, lightning, laser, lightning, etc. But it was water drop photography that intrigued me. With trial and error, the timing and size of the two drops are coordinated so that the camera flash goes off when the second drop lands on top of the first drop. There is no limit on creativity – different substances, adding colors to the liquid and/or background, etc. If you are looking for a fun photo project as you stay safe, this is a great opportunity.
