Look how cute these Splash Dipping Bowls are!

They remind me of shows I watched or books I read as a kid that had slow-motion splashes (or pictures of splashes) in 'em.

I went on a photo shoot once for my old employer. The photographer also did shots for cereal boxes, and had this really convoluted contraption to capture the milk splash perfectly. There was actually a laser beam projected over the bowl. When the drop of cream broke the laser beam the shutter was trigged on the camera to get the perfect shot.

They used cream because it is thicker than milk and photographs better.

They also employed a full-time "food stylist" for all of the food shots to get the food looking pretty before the shots.

I can imagine it'd be really hard to get the timing right manually if you were trying to catch splashes.

And what a fun job that'd be, a food stylist! I wonder how much they make. :D
