Splash Photography

One boring Saturday evening I decided to go into the workshop and try some ‘splash’ photography. I gathered a black pan, food colouring, various sizes of eye droppers and what ever else I thought was useful.

You should have seen the set up! I attached the eye droppers to a mic stand. I arranged everything on top of a miniature bar fridge, thickened the liquid with guar gum and started dropping water – at the same time clicking the shutter.  Not owning any coloured gels for the flash, I collected some old coloured cd cases and taped them to the flashes to create different tints. I also experimented with plastic duotangs. I was thrilled with the results.

Thus begins the splash photography experiments.
