Your gallery is selective and rewarding in every slide.

Hi Dsouzi
Thanks for the kind comments.
I do shoot my splashes at 1/20s, but it's the duration of the flash which freezes the motion not the camera shutter speed. I use a Canon 550EX most of the time and at 1/16 power the flash duration (and hence effective shutter speed) is about 1/15000s. Hope this helps explain things.
Regards Richard.

Richard...your work is inspirational! I LOVE your soap film and splash galleries!! Are you really shooting at 1/20s for the splashes? I've never attempted shots like those, but I've always assumed they must be shot at a higher shutter speed to freeze the motion. Either way, they're very well done! Bravo! Salut from Canada!

You should consider dropping by at the dpreview sigma forum to share your insights on getting shots like these.
