‘I fix all my valves and flashes tot he contraption, and can put the image I want to project behind the dripping water.
‘Sometimes I take 500 pictures and only a couple of them are really perfect in my opinion.
‘I start each series with a goal in my head, but every time is different, so you can plan much but usually it turns out differently.
‘There are so many factors who will influence the result – the viscosity of the water ,the height of the drops, the nozzle size even the temperature of the water.
‘I started taking the pictures after I saw some simple water drop pictures in a German photography community website, and was inspired to try it myself.’
