Shall we dance? (188/365)

This is a shot concept I've been thinking about doing for a while now, this is my first attempt at doing it and it's something I am going to explore a bit more further down the line.


It's droplets of milk "dancing" on a sheet of clingfilm. It's also an absolute son of a b*tch to do. Basically take a large-ish speaker and wrap it in clingfilm, connect it up to a nice beafy amp, drop a few droplets of milk over the cone of the speaker, find some kicking D'n'B (I used Aphrodite - Heat Haze) then crank the volume to 11 and let the fun begin. Have a towel on hand, droplets go further than you think.


This is none of your cheating flash sync speed highspeed, this is your full fat long exposure\short flash duration highspeed.
