No, that's not the AOL Guy casting a cherry spell, it's actually a drop of milk.  Corrie White discovered a talent for macro-photography  and prefers the dairy product due to its slower rate of descent.  Using dyes and little else, she creates some stunning, gorgeous images... she even shows her modest, kitchen-based studio!

@Him: Yes, I mentioned air resistance. Regardless, we're not talking an anvil and a feather; we're talking a drop of water and a drop of milk. Even if there were any difference in surface area due to surface tension, it would be so minuscule that the photog would never be able to tell a difference in speed over a fall of 12 inches.

Wes: Only in a vacuum. Air resistance causes different things to fall at different speeds, depending on how heavy they are or their aerodynamics. Thus, an anvil will fall faster than a feather, unless you are in a vacuum, like the Moon or outer space.

Gorgeous photography. I can't wait to try this myself.

As for the falling more slowly thing, maybe she meant the splashes are slightly more viscous so last a fraction of a second longer and are easier to capture?
