Circles by StineJ Circles by StineJ
This is a Starlite Photo Challenge entry #4 held by :iconzemotion:

I'm quite new to DA, but I saw this contest and thought I'd give it a go and set up my gear at the kitchen table. :)

The setup is a plastic plate placed a few cm above the object. The object is reflected in water/glucose droplets placed on the plastic plate. I backlit the setup with an external flash. Editing in photoshop is a crop, adjusted curves, resize and a small amount of usm.

Very nice!

Gives me a huge set of pattern ideas, one circle many colors, many circles, great.

Well executed - now if you can tell me more about the water/glucose mixture, I would really appreciate that as I am having issues with my roundness of the drops :(

Thanks for being an inspiration,

:wave:

Thanks! Glad it inspires your pattern ideas. ;)

There is no mysterie to the water/glucose mixture. Mostly water, but a tiny bit of glucose. I think one of the most important things to remember if you struggle with the roundness of drops, is to make the droplets small enough. Good luck! :)

This is by far the best in your reflections series. So many people create water droplet photos to the point where it's almost cliche now, but you've reimagined the whole idea to create something fresh and interesting. Good job!
