Oil and Water Abstract Photography How To

I am working on a 365 day project. In the first week of the project I explored different ways of making interesting abstract images using oil and water. This is a simple procedure that yields stunning results. All you need is a transparent pan or dish, something to prop it up on, a light source, an interesting background, olive oil and some water. To achieve good results fill your dish with water with it suspended above the interesting background, then pour oil into the pan. You can also use a spray bottle to get the oil into the pan. Experiment with focussing your lens at varying depths to alter your results. I made a video showing the procedure more in depth. Thanks for watching!
