I was inspired by one of Bryan Peterson‘s many video tutorials to try this. I’ve had the vegetable oil sitting around for quite a while, patiently waiting for me to get my act together, so I’m kind of surprised at myself for actually DOING it finally! ha!
I have a set of extension tubes, which have the tendency to make the whole setup twitch crazily while taking photos, especially when all three of them are on the camera. And so, many of my attempts at this are blurry, which is more frustrating than I can ever explain. I’m sure if I were to get an actual macro lens I would no longer have to worry about this problem. However, I was able to get a few fun shots, such as today’s photo of the day.
I love how the oil and water don’t mix in such a perfect way. I’m not science-minded at all, but I’m curious how it happens that the oil forms these perfectly round circles. Anyone?
