    Pre focus, lock it, start dropping water and let your camera buffer blasting
    away ? :)

    ....and use a greater dept of field (note the other one is using f/13) use
    alcohol and have fun doing it, that way you won't spill too much and make
    sure you light it well!

    don't use a glass, use a small dish, something shallow and wide. the ripples
    look better this way. also try milk, the ?viscosity? is different and looks
    better again.

    and just practice. it takes a while to get the timing right. i assume you're
    shooting digital? (shooting film for water droplets can get expnsive :))
    either way, get familiar with your cameras' shutter lag.

    and what someone else has said. greater DOF, and lighting.

    1. Try the sink
    2. Use a Tea Towel under the water.
    3. Use a flash
    4 SLR 1/200 s shutter (Sports mode on a P&S)
    5 Put a different colour Tea Towel of rag in the background for reflection.
    6 Use a tripod and manual set Focus
    7 Make were the drops are to fall
    8 Use a big Eye dropper or turkey baister.

    I suspect if you don't have a DSLR this will be difficult

    If you need more help just ask.

  9. Yup yup yup :)
    Also, check out my night photos from work.
    Now counting the ones in the hanger of course. The first one was taken
    with 10second shutter speed on a tripod of course. The others 5

    That engine btw, does not fit those BAE 146's.. It's a 727 Engine for
    those of you that are interested. But we're planning on getting 3 more
    to beef up the performance of the 146 :)
