Today I experimented with a glass dish some water, vegetable oil and various multicolored pictures that I used as backdrops. The results of my creations turned out to be very interesting to photograph.
I used my Sigma 105mm macro lens with an aperture of f10 to capture these multicolored bubbles and oils waves.
I used a flash with a sync setting of 1/160 that I hand held and was triggered by remote. The flash was placed downward towards the multicolored backdrop as to reflect back up into the glass dish.
The effects were created by shaking up to vegetable oil in the water using a stick and then capturing the moments with the camera. The experiment yielded most spectacular artistic results.
Enjoy the bubbles!
It was a beautiful sunny afternoon with some nice ambient light coming through the patio window, a nice opportunity to setup a simple Macro photography shoot on the Kitchen table with a few white place mats (IKEA ones). I used a Sigma 105mm Macro 2.8f to capture the bellow sea shells using a tripod.
I am particularly fond of the last shell picture, it makes a nice frame.
Enjoy the gallery!
