Oil and Water by onewing

Oil and Water

Today has been so hot that I decided it was a stay at home and play day. I thought I would have another go at oil and water shots.
I had some black and white striped wrapping paper and thought it may make an interesting shot.

Very intriguing. How did you do this? I'm not really sure what I'm looking at.

Love how the stripes appear on the oil bubbles! Well thought and executed! It looks like a graphic poster. Absolutely awesome, FAV!
January 16th, 2014  
Wonderful. It looks brilliant in B&W

@steampowered Thanks Paul. It was b&w. It was black and white striped wrapping paper under a dish of oil and water.

@sunraye Thanks Raye and thanks for the fav. It was a bit too hot to go out and look for a photo today. Not as not as the south of the country though. I think it is heading our way.

@rlaughy Put water and olive oil in the lid of a casserole dish. Balance it on blocks of wood or something similar about 8 inches above the ground or a table and put a piece of black and white striped wrapping paper underneath it. Mount camera on a tripod and there you go. You can use any paper, but I wanted to use b&w for this shot.

Very creative Babs, love it :-)

this is awesome! Love the design feel about it! You could turn this into a new wrapping paper design - or it would look great as a graphic print. Did you use any special lighting for this?
January 16th, 2014  
Cool... The b&w lines make the shot. Such an interesting take on the oil and water concept!
January 16th, 2014  
This is fantastic, it would make a great canvas! FAV!!
January 16th, 2014  
Very cool - fav

This is such an interesting pic! Just love the striped bubbles and it really pops in B&W! Clever idea-- Thanks for sharing your process. I'd like try
this sometime. Fav!
January 16th, 2014  
Got it. Makes perfect sense now.
January 16th, 2014  
Amazing, one day I would like to try it myself....
January 16th, 2014  
Fantastic image here so clever of you to catch this shot of oil & water.
January 16th, 2014  
Very cool abstract!!! Love it. Would look good framed I think!
January 16th, 2014  
Gosh- this is great! Could be "wall art".
January 16th, 2014  
it reminds me of an album cover the 80s
January 16th, 2014  
Really clever Babs, the striped paper works a treat. Fav.

@hermann Thanks Sally. Had fun with this one.
January 17th, 2014  
@angelat thanks Angela. No special lighting. I suppose it may have come out different if I did. I just set it up on the floor in the study with the natural light coming in through the sliding door.

@cathy366 Thanks so much Cathy and for the fav.

@linc Thanks so much for the fav Cheri. It was too hot to go out yesterday to take a photo, so decided to play instead.
January 17th, 2014  
@redy4et Thanks so much Elizabeth and for the fav. This is only my second attempt at oil and water, so look forward to trying it again some time. It is good fun.
January 17th, 2014  
@rlaughy Look forward to seeing some oil and water shots from you now.
January 17th, 2014  
@joeyc Thanks Joey. Give it a go, it is good fun.

@happypat @eyesmile @angelar @salbelle Thanks so much for your lovely comments. I believe this turned up on the Trending Page briefly, although I didn't see it myself. I think because in Austrtalia we are in front of most countries timewise I was probably in bed when it appeared. @paulaw Thanks for the fav Paula. I bought the striped paper to do a glass and water photo which Nic and I played with a while ago and wondered what else I could use it for. Will have to think of another idea now.
January 17th, 2014  
Fantastic results. Fav.
January 17th, 2014  
Great capture, Babs! Love the creativity! Keep it up.....I need the ideas while the 'heat' is on!
January 17th, 2014  
@sewsharyn Thanks for the fav Sharon. I have just found out that it was on the Trending Page and the Popular Page too, I am gobsmacked!!! @savannah51 I'm working on another idea with the black and white paper now. Too hot today to take photos. I think you have got a cool change due tomorrow, so Deb tells me.
January 17th, 2014  
brilliant shot, babs! love it.
January 17th, 2014  
Deb
Congratulations on the pp and trending
January 17th, 2014  
Wow I just love this. Almost tried that as well today. Was 37 degrees here as well. Hope the heat goes away quickly :-)
January 17th, 2014  
Makes such a wonderful abstract!
January 17th, 2014
