Is it possible to get a photo of the setup?

I apologize. I'm not real good with monitoring my posts... I do not have a photo of the setup but I used a kiddie pool to keep the water from making a mess. I had two strobes, one on each side on the splash area. I prefocused on the spot that I would be making the splashes. I had a large white background behind the scene. A Botero actually. It's a product that is about 6' by 4' and it is black on one side and white on the other.

I set another strobe on the floor about 3 ft from the background, shooting through a grid with a red gel to make a circularish red spot. The overall area used is probably about 15 to 20'. Using a 90mm lens had a lot to do with that.

Google Alex Koloskov. He is the master at splash photography and I got all the ideas for messing around with this from him. Good guy. Hope this helps.
