Photographing Water Drops

Many a times we have watched those mind boggling documentaries on slow motion photography, be it a bursting water balloon or a bullet being fired from a gun. The Frames per Second (FPS) required to see that kind of action varies. For example, a water balloon being punctured can be photographed comfortably at much lower FPS compared to bullet being fired. It’s all about freezing the moment in time and the timing in doing so is the key.

Experimentation is the key to learning what is not known, that being said I will highlight my learning’s on how to photograph a water drop bouncing off water.
