Oil on Water Abstract Images

Surfing Internet can lead you to some very interesting places. Yesterday I was looking for technique to shoot “dancing smoke”. Since every web page or blog has links to other places I came across another interesting project for indoor photography that I found fascinating – oil droplets on water surface. Nice images but no explanation how it was done. Within minutes of searching I came across Karli’s blog that had what I was looking for. How nice of her to share her knowledge!

I have decided to share my little secrets as well. I will post my set-up for these interesting images on my next blog.

WOW!! The colors!! You did amazing with these shots... VERY enjoyable to look at! So fun, isn't it?! :-)

OK, I got another one for you... here's a link to some smoke photographs I did awhile back. I was amazed how easy it was to get a good shot. (It does require a little Photoshop magic if you're into that.... to get the black background a deeper color...) Anyway, here's the link if you're interested:

I didn't include the instructions in my post, but if you decide to try it out, let me know and I'll send you the tutorial I used.

I used to blog almost every day, but it was getting to be too much (I have 3 little kids), so I cut WAY back, and I post very infrequently. Mostly pics of my kids, etc. I miss these fun projects! I will live vicariously thru you. ha ha :-)
