See posts 19-20, those are with milk.
As I experiment, I am learning different things. This is a very, very fiddly form of photography. Every time you set up, it takes about 50 images to get the "feel" down. The reason is every little thing factors in.
The height of the MIOPS from the water. Any change in height changes the parameters.
The size of the droplets.
The gaps in time between drops.
The number of drops etc.
The gaps between those drops (up to 4 drops, change one ... whole new ball game!)
Any one little change and the whole equation changes. One impacts all the others.
I think I am going to email customer support in Turkey and see if I can learn something new from them. The key piece, the part where a droplet of water causes a tower of water to erupt from the pool and is met, when it has almost crested, by a colliding drop coming down from the MIOPS device, to form that crown looking explosion, still escapes me.
All this is measured in milliseconds and I have done them all patiently to no success. Maybe I am missing a little secret I need to find out about.
The images above are produced with blue food coloring in the water and a drop of soap. Forget the soap, too many after bubbles you have to deal with before you can proceed again. Waste of time. I am sure there are liquid thickening agents I can buy to experiment with.
Bottom line: FASCINATING.
This has really caught my interest, especially coming into Winter. Something to do while it is bleak outside!!
