    So I was brushing my teeth and I noticed the faucet dripping. My wife had inadvertantly left the faucet just enough to form a drop every 3 seconds or so. I decided to try to capture it. Not as easy as I thought! I ended up bringing 2 150W halogen torchiere lamps into the bathroom on top of the 150W above the medicine cabinet. Even with a total of 450W in a 5ft. x 7ft. bathroom it took about 60 shots for me to get this.

    Here is what the set up looked like. The room is a lot brighter than it appears. I set exposure on the bulbs.

    love it! Wish the drop was a bit larger, but nothing you can do about that. I really like the symmetry. I think if you can find a way to make the photo brighter to really bring out the contrast between the white ceramic and the chrome faucet it would be more impactful.

    Great stuff. To my eye it's also the traditional styling of the fittings that helps the interest here.

    yeah, well, he's a photographer. 'Course he's nuts.
