I've wanted to try this for a long time. There are a million web pages on how to do it; here's one. There are a few tricks to it. One is to shoot a lot, since most of them will be duds.

I was hoping to get that classic crown splash, but this is about as close as I came. Actually, I had one that was a better splash, but the lighting was terrible.

Very cool! I really dig the second and third pictures.

I've been to the Strobist site many times, but I have yet to set myself up with an off camera flash. I'm going to have to fix that. :)

Kristopher - somebody in the comments on Stobist (way-cool blog!) said they' d done it with on-camera flash, but it seems to me it would be hard to get the angle right. I have a couple of old Nikon SB-26 flashes I got on Ebay that work quite well. I have a remote cord, and the 26s also have a built-in optical slave. Great flash unit for Strobist-style shooting. Almost no automation on current Nikon cameras, though.

Erick- yep, digital makes this workable. I shot hundreds of frames and most were just calm water or a little ripple.
