Oil and water abstract photography is something that has intrigued me for a while. With COVID-19 limiting outdoor activity, this seemed like a good time to try it for myself.
The idea is simple enough. Fill a glass container with water, toss in some oil, put a background underneath, and take some photos. Of course, the actual execution is rather more involved. I experimented with several approaches and can think of others that I might try later. And despite painstaking attention to detail, the results are still a bit unpredictable. Even so, I had a blast doing this for an afternoon, and I'll probably come back to this again.
