For fun tonight we tried an idea we’d read about and got these cool shots of oil droplets in water. The first one looks to me like a planet or maybe the moon and some of them look like marbles or apples. It’s a really simple and quick thing to set up that leaves you with interesting abstract photos. All we did was get a clear glass jug of water, dripped a few drops of oil into it and placed it on top of coloured paper, making sure we had a good light shining on it. We stirred it around from time to time with a chopstick to stop the droplets from all merging into one.
Planets in the kitchen?
