great shots - love #3
was this a lighter red oil on top of water ?
It was red food colouring dropped into a round mixing bowl that started off with clear water. The last one is actually one of the first ones I took, it doesn't have as much red in the water.
Dropped with a syringe that I used to use for topping up ink cartridges many years ago.
I finally finished building a photogate with delay timer and trigger for a flash, I think I will get it to trigger the camera too so I don't have to stand in the dark as much.
One thing I haven't done yet is make a housing for the the ir emitter and reciever, at the moment they are just taped to a piece of card with a hole in it suspended on a tripod with the syringe over the top taped to the middle.
+1 on #3
It is a great collection all together but 3!
Its like watching those videos you see of Tornados and Storms on the sun
Agree with others... these are superb photos and love the detail in #3
Best I've seen ... superb!
Great set! So much better than my feeble efforts, though I suspect it gets easier with the correct setup (syringe, trigger etc.), whereas I was trying to do absolutely everything by hand
It is a lot easier, as long as you get the focus right you are pretty much guaranteed a decent shot.
The only thing I can't seem to do at the moment is drop collisions. Set up at the moment is dark room with camera on a 3-5 second exposure, drop breaks sensor beam and starts delay timer, timer fires flash. So sending 2 drops down ends up with 2 flashes creating 2 images in the exposure and spoiling it.
I'm going to rip my remote lead apart later and get it to trigger the camera and flash at the same time, so hopefully it will take 2 seperate shots and I will get a collision.
I tried just pressing the shutter at the right time in the past but I was hopeless.
Been there, nightmare!! +another1 for #3 great shots.
3 & 4 are corkers.
A few more from Friday night.
Spent hours trying to get collisions.
I thought my photgate/delay box had gone faulty, it became very unpredictable, I realised cheap pound shop 9v batteries are not worth a carrot.
I've since added a DC socket to the box so I can use a power adapter.
Forum won't let me post more than 10 photo's at a time
Looking good especially No.17
Really nice shots One thing i notice is the clarity
nice set 8, 15 and 17 are especially good
Gorgeous to see.... wonderful as cards or wallpaper etc...
These are brilliant, like coloured-glass sculptures. Hard to pick favourites but 3, 4 and 17 are particularly eye-catching.
Love these, must have a try myself sometime
Pretty darn awesome is all I can say too... would you mind telling me how you built the photgate/delay box as I am pretty useless at doing anything that involves building circuits etc... would love to try this out myself too!!
I used the instructions here HiViz - Instruction Manual for the SPG-DU Kits
