150mm lens on a bellows
Two medium sized soft lights were used, the first was under the glass
backdrop and the other overhead. Black sand was sprinkled on the glass
surface and I vibrated the glass to make the sand disbursed in various
patterns. A laser trigger was aligned
over the top of the small wine glass and a delay module was used to delay the trigger signal long enough for
the drop of liquid to begin to enter the the liquid. An electronic cable release was then used to trip the shutter.
Far less delay was used for this shot compared to the blue water drop as this drop is just entering the liquid
and with the blue drop the liquid has entered and reemerged to form the
drop. If you can explain the physics simply e-mail me and I'll include the info for others.
