I use High speed phography techniques to captures this type of photos. the room should be dark and the shutter is opened for one second. During this second, my flash is triggered to freeze the action. The flash is usually set to the minimum power to reduce the duration of the flash which means better action freezing. To trigger the flash at the right moment you can trigger it manually or using sensors. I used sensors but it is not a must.

for more details on High speed photography you can go to http://hiviz.com/

In this shot, I swinged the glass around its base and it was like a cup centrifuge and this caused the water inside to form this arch.

I don't know how he did it, but I bet it cost him quite a few wine glasses ;)

Dear Mohammad --
You're in a class by yourself!
Nothing even comes close to this.
Imaginative, unique, technically precise, exacting, absolutely beautiful.
Is perfection achieveable? If not, you're definitely near with this one!
I add my humble CONGRATULATIONS, Well Done and Well Deserved to everyone else's!
