Pretty maids all in a row.
High speed long exposure. One valve, one frame, one click and hold to trigger the drops. I'm having difficulty explaining this procedure properly. Try this:
The Process: I activate the shutter button. This opens the shutter
on the camera for a two second period. I keep the shutter button held
down which also triggers the drops and the flashes to the intervals I
have set on the Time Machine. I hold this button down and the drops
keep falling and the flashes keep firing for as many as I can get in
before the shutter closes after two seconds. As I am holding down the
button, I am also panning the camera on the tripod to hopefully get
them all in the frame. It depends on the shape of the drop how many
you can fit into the frame and how your panning capabilities are.
Quite often they overlap or are slightly out of the frame, so I toss a
lot of them. Some of the drops are quite tall and thin and I have one
I will post sometime which has seven, I think. Not a pretty one, but
an accomplishment ;-)
I hope this explains it properly.
