Tips for getting the perfect Splash Photography

-Make sure that you are shooting against a dark backdrop

-Since you will be shooting at a faster shutter-speed make sure that there is enough light to compensate for it.

-If you want a clear glass without the object used to splash the water up, take two exposures (One before the impact and one after it) and create a composite using Photoshop.

Mise-en-Scene, is everything that goes in front of the camera in that particular scene. Lighting, Costumes, Backgrounds, Foregrounds, Positioning, Props etc. This is really critical while creating interesting miniature/toy photographs. You can see my associate, Param, carefully staging the scene for the shot. The final image was captured using the OnePlus2 mobile camera.

Ideal settings (See the attached screenshot of the cam-display) could be :
Any DSLR camera
ShutterSpeed: 1/1250 ;
Aperture: 5 and above ; 
ISO: 800 to 1600;
Zoom: 200mm to 300mm;
A full moon night.

Its better to use Manual Focus unless you have a fast lens.
