Martin Waugh, an amazing artist with a degree in physics, tries to captures the most beautiful shapes water can create when in motion. He combines art and science to photograph its movement by constantly changing the size and color, viscosity and surface tension, speed and position of the water drops.

    You need a strobe light, for starters … Flash it at the object for a short amount of time. I’m not sure if a special camera is required; it might not be.
