Ever seen photos like this and wondered how and if you could recreate them?
Until about a year ago i’d seen these and thought how amazing and interesting they looked. So i set myself a challenge to see if I could recreate something (anything) like what i’d seen! I researched on the internet and eventually came up with some idea of what i should try. A little bit of trial and error later and i decided to write my own blog post on how to create images like this.
Equipment you will need:
Choose some colourful items or striking patterns for your base of the image. I used feathers, smarties, torn up tissue paper and an old black and white photo.
Set up your bowl with a small amount of water in. Place your colour under the bowl. Then add a little oil to the water.
Photograph what you see!
Its as simple as that!
A few points that may help you.
You can experiment with whatever you wish to use under the dish. You will find that letting the water settle gives you bigger oil droplets whilst agitating the water will give you more smaller droplets.
