I think the correct expression is "F**K ME "!
1/200th ??? A misprint ?
Oh, or maybe its strobed ? I'm not up to speed on this sort of stuff.

2 speedlights, 1 either side and both set at 1/64 power, it’s the low power output that freezes the image 8-)

Very nice Matt, I love the fact that you have caught 2 drops colliding, did you time it manually or use a trigger to capture it?

Very cool shot. I dabbled with some water drops a while ago pre SDP. You have inspired me to try again.

How many attempts did it take to get that one? Looks like something you would see swimming in the deep. (-:

I used a SpashArt 2 kit. Very expensive but I managed to get mine at a bargain price.

It's pretty simple but takes a lot of patience. You could take hundreds of shots and they'd all be slightly different.
