      This is great, Chris! It seems like you got your timing down packed. I have tried again and again since our chat the other night and although I got a few drops crashing, I've got nothing like this. Which is kinda what made me think it was the milk (or something else thickening the water). Mine seem so sloppy.

      Cold water works best.. colder the better, milk is easier but gives a different type of splash. Also try glycerin to increase viscosity.

      Wow, I really like this one. I've not experimented with long exposures and using the flash to stop action. hmm...

      wow. I've never tuned in to this type of "drop" photography; it appears to be its own genre. this one is gorgeous--like really expensive handblown glass!

      These are amazing. I still don't understand the exposure. How can you freeze this while using a slow shutterspeed? Does the room has to be pitch black is this case?
