Some slomo milk drops with 2 different colours, this is so time consuming trying to get the 2 drops aligned, this is about a 2 hour exercise and about 100 shots to get these 4 reasonable shots.

When using still shots that stop the action, less precision is required. That's because an irregular formation can be as attractive as a regular formation when presented as a still shot. Even so, I had a bad session the other day making still shots when I didn't get anything that I would have remotely considered a keeper until I had captured more than 300 shots. Then, without changing anything important, 25% of the the next 200 shots made the first cull.

Yeah been there.
I gotta say this slow motion is more challenging than still shots, a fraction off with the focus or iso etc and they come out cr*p.
