Galaxies In Oil And Water - Original Photography

in #creativecoin2 years ago

Hi all,

Yeah, it's still winter and yes I am still indoors trying to be inventive with some abstract macro work. This time it is oil and water galaxy "thingies". I have a glass tray suspended over some Xmas wrapping paper. Mix the oil and water and you get a load of bubbles and if you time it right, you get some pretty interesting shapes. I am not that happy with the lighting here so I will try again at some point. I don't think wrapping paper is the best option... too shiny.

Anyone else ever had a go at this?

My favourite is definitely the first one, dark blue works really well with these.





Thanks for stopping by



These are absolutely beautiful Mark!! I’m not even sure how you accomplished them, but I’m blown away.

Love the colors, and all the details.. it looks as if you’ve captured the beauty of another world ❤️ Great work!!

Thanks very much :)

Some pretty interesting shots. On something like that where do you have the light source placed? Is it just the regular indoor overhead lights or also some side lights from desk lamps? I think I like the third one best.

I have the glass bowl suspended about 30cm above the background that I am using (which sits on the desk) so I have a Speedlite (Yongnuo YN560) which is illuminating the background only. In this kind of thing where the actual subject is pretty much transparent, you should light the background and not the subject itself.

Thanks? I was wondering how the light worked for something like that.

Most of the time I vote on your posts because I like your experiments. But this one really deserve a comment. Amazing work man ;)

Oh wow, these are beautiful!!!

These are cool, I think I like #2 the best but they all have something going for them. So the water/oil is not colored right? The colors are just being picked up from the refraction of the background in the bubbles?
