Kids don't try this at home!
With this deviation I wanted to break the tradition of an ice cube creating a splash by adding a little more pizzazz. It's not that I don't like those types of shots-I think they are amazing- but I wanted to add my own spin on things.
I will add a print for the second frame of the animated gif later this week.
Please note that this is very dangerous and can easily get out of control if not properly executed.
-One Strobe light with umbrella to left placed high at a 45 degree angle.
-One glass sitting on a piece of 18" black plexiglass.
-One piece of black foam core board to the rear of the glass, held in place with an boom arm.

I added a third image to the gif download. Please note that the quality of the gif images are very poor and there is a slight difference in exposure, due to the recycle time needed on a strobe light.
Also, to those who attempt to venture this-I highly advise against it- ice, oil and fire do not like each other, the ice will POP! at some point which may cause the fire to spray every where!
