I’ve been trying for ages to get two drops to collide as they are dropped into a bowl. Finally I have achieved it. Up to now I’ve had trouble with focus and sharpness. I’ve finally solved those problems, although I need more light to avoid underexposure. Looks like I’m in the market for a decent studio light!!! :) This image was made by dropping pink coloured milk into blue milky water.

Canon EOS 40D. 90mm Macro lens.

I am an avid photographer of 60+ and will shoot just about anything, although I’m not so good at moving objects. Anything faster than a snail leaves me for dead. (haha) I do prefer natural landscapes over urban ones but, really, nothing is safe from my lens. I also enjoy turning my failed images, and there are lots, into digital art.

In 2014 I started dabbling in Fractal Art using Apophysis 7x to satisfy my creative urges on the days when I can’t take photos.

    This is fantastic Ann! You nailed it!! Woo hoo!! :))

  • Thanks Vicki. Not quite nailed it but I came very close with this one. Now I’ve just got to get more light onto the setup. The photos are coming out too underexposed. Hopefully in a few weeks I can afford a studio light. The flashes just aren’t enough with the shutterspeed/apeture combo I need to use. Still, I must admit I am pretty chuffed with myself. I’m almost there.. Woohoo!

    Stunning. If this is “not quite nailed”, I can’t imagine what a “nailed” image will be like!

    How do you get them to collide? I still haven’t managed that…
