   One of the funniness project, dropping inks in a water and shooting the action, you will never know what you will get.

 The Equipments
  o Water + Water container or Glass. 
  o  Food color or normal ink.
  o Use Camera Flash or light source.
  o Camera on Stand.
  o Manual Focus.
  o High Speed shutter.

List of things in this Studio:

[o] Bowl of water. [semi-transparent bowl]
[o] Needle for dripping the ink.
[o] Food ink, or any normal ink.
[o] I used a Tripod and Monopod [as shown] to get the camera Top to bottom.
[o] Nikon SB900 as speed-light.
[o] Camera Nikon D90 + 35mm lens.

    I really enjoyed doing smoke photography and water splash photography – but I’ve never tried this. It looks like a lot of fun and you’ve created some wonderfully colourful images with this technique. I’ll have to give this a try :^) Thank you for sharing your method and setup.

    I really like your projects. Before reading your bio, I assumed you must be an engineer because of he scientific way you approach them. Very nice. Thank you for looking at my site also.
