Take some nice super macro's of your water droplets. Create colors using colored paper on the bottom of you sink or whatever you feel is necessary to get the perfect shot. Just keep it flowing.

Most, if not all cameras have this mode. (Sunwukong1 recommends using the shutter priority mode and setting the fastest flash sync possible) *Set a Background if you feel it is necessary. If you are shooting in your sink you might consider a towel or something basic to cover up the faucet. Some people also use colored paper on the bottom of their sinks which creates a great colored reflection on each drop. *Use light! turn on the lights to eliminate dark, and shadowed rooms *Play with white balance settings to make the water "blue" *Use your Flash! *Try and synchronize the water dropping with your reflex on the shutter button *Take the shot! *Don't get discouraged!

Once uploaded to your computer the snapshots look much better, and you will find a couple nice surprises.
