Floats like a Butterfly...

And Stings like a bee!


While sitting down and taking photos of water drops, every once in a while a shot pops up and I immediately see something in it! I see shapes, faces, and figures in the clouds all the time and things just randomly pop up in these also.


I have a LONG list of things that I want to try with this unit. There are a lot of variables to work with to see if I can get things more consistent. I am getting ready to put some different valves into play and work with different nozzles to see if I can get the drops falling more consistently first. A session of photos can take 4 hours or more, several hundred shots and only yeild a few "keepers" and I would really like to figure out a way to narrow that down more. One thing I have noticed with all of this is that it takes constant adjustment of the drop cycles and I currently have adjustment resolution of 100 microseconds, so I am going to change that to 10 microsecond increments to allow for finer adjustments.


More to come! :-)
