Interview for the Water Experimentation group home page.


Hi Anthony,

I have selected you to be featured on the Water Experimentation home page. Would you be willing to be interviewed to share your knowledge with the group? If yes, please reply with the answers to these questions:

1. Name? Anthony L. Sacco

2. Where do you call home? Clifton, New Jersey USA

3. What equipment do you use? I use a Nikon D300 and D200 for most of my water splashes, studio, and 'normal' photos and a modified infrared camera, Nikon D70s for infrared photography. I have two macro lenses that I use often, Nikon 105mm F2.8 and a Sigma 150mm f2.8. My other lenses are the Nikon 24-70 f2.8, 70 -200mm f2.8, 12-24 f4, 18-200mm f3.5 ,50mm f1.8 to name a few, 3 Nikon speedlights..SB800, SB600 and SB80dx. Bogen, Feisol and Tiltall tripods and stands. But all the most recent 'magic' happens with the Stop Shot High Speed electronic timing system kit from http://www.cognisys-inc.com for capturing water splashes and water figures. And the most important part...a spare room in my house dedicated for studio,and still life photography.

4. What inspires you to create an image? I enjoy creating unusual, 'not so common' photographic art. I try to capture images that set me apart from other photographers. So I try to be creative, and seek out more difficult and sometimes expensive ways to create unique art photos.
But what I truly love, is the positive feedback I get from others, which in turn inspires me to create more images.

5. Do you have any tips or tricks you would like to share? You are the creator, you don't need expensive equipment to be creative. My first experimental waterdrop splash photos came from a setup around my bathtub, using the shower head for drips! I now find that having total..or try to have total control over the photographic session is the key. Think the project over and plan ahead. Keep it simple and experiment. I use the KISS rule...Keep It Simple Stupid. Over the years I saved up and invested in good equipment, which helps make some projects easier. I also get inspired by other photographers and artists.

Thanks and congratulations
