Flickr a Day 181: ‘Inner Ring Drop’

We end the first half of the year with something not seen in this series until today. Joe Dyer is a high-speed photographer—taking “natural, mostly birds, and studio shots of liquids glass and other props”, he says. “I use a Binary Logic Photo Trigger! Laser and sound sensor for most of the shots”. At his PhotoTrigger website, he offers kits for producing the kind of splash art that takes the Day.

Joe shot self-titled “Inner Ring Drop” on March 19, 2013, using Canon EOS 7D and EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens (helluva Canon prime). Vitals: f/16, ISO 200, 1/250 sec—with the Drop Control SplashArt Water Drop Kit. Joe provides more: “Strobist info 2 YN560 through Perspex. Yellow gel on top flash, purple on bottom flash. Mounted vertically 1/32 Power, 12 inches behind drop. Liquid: Water with about 10% Corn Syrup touch of yellow food clour and dishwasher cleaner”.

He lives in Buckhurst Hill, England, and joined Flickr in November 2011.
