Hi Ian - thanks for the comment. I used a home-made light-beam splitter with a delay timer to fire off the flash. Needs to be done in the dark with camera set on 'B'!

Hi Nuri!

Thanks for commenting. The 7.3sec exposure happened to be the time using 'B' setting. The trigger fires only the flash and not the camera, so I just held shutter open before the water drop descended, and then waited until the flash had fired before releasing. Hope that's clear!
