Water games

Photography with fast shutterspeeds requires an elaborate arrangement of tripods, remotely triggered flashes and most importantly, a capable camera. I have none :-(

I used the manual mode of my Lumix to set the shutterspeed at 1/800 and activated the camera's timer mode, having no one to assist me with the ball. I waited for the red focus light to blink twice before dropping the ball into the glass. It was very frustrating as manually synchronising a shot is not easy at all. It took over half a dozen shots before I got one right.

I need a DSLR....
