Water Drops and Colored gels / by Sean Fleming

     For these photos I experimented with water drops and colored gels. I used a strobe and bounced it off of a white reflector behind the drops. I set up a drip bag on the top of a flash stand above my pan of water so I would get semi-consistent drips. It took me a while to get used to the timing but I was pretty happy with the results. The strength of the flash had to be adjusted depending on the color of the gel I put on. Most had to be slightly brightened in photoshop. The texture of the pan gave most of the photos a grainy effect which I wasn't too happy about so next time I'll remember to use something other than a cooking pan. Learned a lot about freezing motion with a strobe and flash synchronization.
