Using the Leica D-Lux 6 for Water Drop Photography

I have recently made a few posts about water drop photography using the Sony DSC-RX100 and the Panasonic Lumix LX7. Today I will post a few photos I took with the Leica D-Lux 6 using a similar setup. These shots all were taken in Manual exposure mode with the shutter speed set to 0.5 second and the aperture set to f/8.0. I used manual focus for each shot, focusing ahead of time on a small hand bell in the water tray where the drops would be falling. I have continued to make adjustments to the arrangement and lighting of the water tray, so the images in the gallery below look a bit different from the ones I posted earlier.

For these shots, I used a larger tray to hold the main body of water, and I had the drops falling from a different height. I also placed sheets of red and blue paper behind the tray, so when the flash fired it bounced off both sheets, adding blue and red streaks to the images. I plan to keep experimenting with this setup, because there are so many possibilities for getting interesting images. For now, here are a few shots, one showing two drops before they collided, and the others showing the results of several other collisions.
