Lambada? hehe tango? waltz? hehe

Experimenting with food colorings.

---------

This was taken with a table lamp and a wine glass. Lamp was behind the glass, very minimal set up at home. Food colorings were dipped onto the surface of the water with a syringe. Tiny bits of food coloring can help control the speed of them dropping to the bottom of the glass so I had more time to shoot the forms and shapes of them. ^^

There's nothing really special that you have to do to create something like that. It is some what like smoke photography, I feel that it is very dependent on luck.

Have fun with it! : D

--------

Thank you all for the support all this time! :hug:

Do post questions if u have any, I will try my best to answer. Note me if you would like to use this picture for school projects etc. ^^ <3

I was working with food coloring for a science project, and i looked at it, and got the idea to do some photos of the water color

I searched on here, and found your beautiful one.

I am wondering if you would have any tips or advise to shoot something of the same concept as this pic

:iconvonvonz:
vonvonz Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2009  Professional General Artist
There is nothing really important during this shoot to be honest. adding small amount of food coloring at a time might make it easier to control the water from getting cloudy too quickly. :)

Have fun, it's a lot of experimenting.

This is very beautiful and sensuous. :) Do you have any single colour ones as well? I'd like to see a series going through the spectrum of single colours. This is really lovely work!
