An IT Professional by profession, photography is a hobby that makes me sane (and sometimes insane). Living in Manila, Philippines with my wife and two sons. As with most beginners in photography, I started in shooting Portraits and Landscapes… until I am inspired by the images under the genre High Speed Photography. I tried it and never looked back. Still developing my photographic skill under this field, I aim to create awe-inspiring images that our bare eyes can’t normally see – whether it is a water droplet, water drop umbrella, splashing water, popping balloon, dancing paint/color, exploding bottle, etc.

First Try in Water Drop Umbrella

Published February 27th, 2012

The following images came from my first attempt in water drop umbrella / collision using StopShot Water Drop Photography Kit. I'm still familiarizing myself to the the bells and whistles of StopShot. Used just plain water, maybe I'll use milk, or colored liquid next time.
