Today’s photo project involves water, oil and origami papers. I put the oil and water in a pie plate and the colored paper underneath. I started by using a stand-alone flash along the side of the dish. Even at the lowest setting it was washing out the image though.
I then used the built in flash to light up the oil from above. This gave a really interesting colored light bouncing back up through the oil. After experimenting with different colored papers I settled on the blue since it gave a really rich hue.
