    what is the kit lens? and i would have thought that using a flash with those pics would make them not come out properly, since water is so reflective.

    Pics look amazing btw. :)

    Sorry for not explaining the setup better months ago

    i used a cooking pot lid about 15 inch diameter and filled it to the brim with water and placed CDs on the bottom for color. Then I placed all of this at a height that my tripod would be barely looking down on it when the camera was in place.

    Setup my remote shutter -- continuous shooting mode -- manually focused to where I thought the drop would be in focus at.

    Filled my right hand with water -- remote shutter in left --- started dropping and started clicking. Hoped for the best
