I hadn’t done a high-speed image for a couple of weeks, so I decided tonight would be a good chance to do another one. I knew I wanted something different from my typical splash shots though, so I once again brought out the oil, and tried a new angle this time around. I have to admit it was scary at times with my camera hovering over the action.
I had the idea of pouring oil into water for a picture for quite a while, and this evening I set up a mini studio to do so while my roommate sat and looked on. We decided there wasn’t enough contrast between the oil and water, so I was going to add food coloring to the water, but she wondered what would happen with acrylic paint. Well, needless to say, we got some pretty awesome results. I will most likely be uploading more of these because they were just awesome.
Sorry this is a day late, I didn’t have my computer with me all day and didn’t get home until very very late and was exhausted. My friend Susannah was about to mix the brown that we needed for our sepia tone value painting in class, and she got all the colors on the palette knife and said “Quick! Look, wouldn’t this make a great picture?” So I quickly grabbed my camera and snapped a few for my 365. Thank goodness I have a friend looking out for shots for me. I am not the biggest fan of how this turned out, but hey, it is something.
