A few years back I purchased the Pluto Trigger, a device that connects to a camera to automatically trigger the camera, depending on what you are trying to achieve. I had originally been looking for something I could use for photographing lighting, and when I was on their website I noticed that they also had a water droplet valve to create water drop photography. While I have attempted this type of photography in the past (with very little luck, I might add) it’s not something I had really considered trying again. But I do like a challenge, so it appealed to me quite a bit.
My first attempt using it was quite successful, and since then I have had a lot of fun playing with the settings, liquids, and even backdrops, to try and achieve different effects. In this article, I will share my experience with this accessory, how I achieve a waterdrop collision, along with some behind-the-scenes of my setups for those of you who are attempting this for yourself.
