Wow is right! Love how you captured the colors within the colors and shapes of the drops. Well done.

Thanks,
I used a clear glass bowl almost full of water.Iuse my Benbo tripod's hook end to position a baby aspirator full of water directly over center of bowl about 18 inches above.I use my 60mm2.8 micro nikor on another tripod about 7 inches from center and just above rim of bowl.I use the in camera flash in commander mode along with a SB-700 and a R-200 macro flash at different angles with home made color filters for each flash.
I then squeeze the aspirator and try to time it just right and use my remote release.In these shots I shot a stream into the bowl versus a drop.

Thank you,
It is something you just need to experiment with and take alot of shots as the timing is difficult to get .Having 3 flashes with remote has helped alot to have a multitude of options.Thanks again and Aloha

Awesome art! Love them...
So basically the colored lighting effects are given by that of the different colored defusers you made?
