A Drop of Water

Jim Kramer takes absolutely amazing photographs of water droplets. He uses paints and other colors to make the shots even more beautiful. He will also sometimes use additives like glycerol and dishwashing soap to alter the water’s consistency. Kramer uses a highly precise system, comprised of valves, stop shot sensors, and cameras for a perfect timing.
