Oil and Water

Last night I was back in the studio. I thought I'd give something a go that had become a little cliche a few years ago, but I think is due a renaissance...maybe only I think that...

Anyway, What I did was spray some water on a silver CD, shine a light on it at an angle so I got the spectrum of colours visible through the drops and photograph it with my macro lens. They make for brilliant computer desktop wallpapers.

Tomorrow I shall be photographing a car rally through Merrick in the Galloway National Park. Probably in the rain, but this should make for more interesting pictures hopefully!


  1. I like to see oil and petrol slicks in puddles. Such unusual shapes and colours. This is a neat trick, and a good use of those CDs which you wonder why you ever bought them in the first place.

    Enjoy your rally. Gail & I are off to Chester for the weekend with a friend. One of the highlights will be visiting the studio of professional photographer Damian McGillycuddy.

  2. Ooooo! I should try this at home!
