Red_Bender (High speed photo of two bent glasses. I melted the stems of these glasses using a propane torch and bent them into right angles...(well almost..)

Set up
- Glasses were mounted on a home built, sliding table.
- Flashes were triggered with a Stop Shot unit using an IR photodetector trigger.
- Two SB-800 flashes were used, one behind and one set at 11 o'clock, snooted and set to optical slave mode to highlight the front.)
Gurgle (Water splashing into a glass --- or is it?

Looks can be deceiving....


Strobist
- SB800 behind frosted acrylic sheet, bounced off foamboard.
- HiViz Schmitt photogate trigger with delay
- custom built sliding table.
- Used Picacsa for some cropping and saturation colors. Used Photoshop elements to remove an errant drop -- otherwise, the picture is as taken......)

Strobist / setup;
- Custom built sliding table - glass is affixed to the table, which slides to the right stopping abruptly. When this occurs. the flash is triggered, capturing the splash.

Red_v_Green (High speed photography
Red and Green colored water.
Used quaketronics flash controller, sound activated, American DJ Snap Shot II strobe behind frosted plexi sheet, behind glasses.

Created by mounting each glass on a sliding table. The tables then collided into one another, causing the splash effect.)
Distortion (Mounted a glass on sliding table which stops abruptly causing a splash effect. Table triggers a flash mounted behind glass. I placed some mini-blinds behind the screen to make a pattern which would distort in the splash.
Strobist;
- SB-800 set behind screen, set to 1/8th power.
- Triggered using HiViz Schmitt photo-gate trigger with delay circuit.
- Custom built sliding table and frosted acrylic background.
- Set up mini-blinds behind screen to make lines)
