Rove by Richard G Witham

Abstract macro photography created with oil and water.

Featured in Olympus and 4/3’s group May 2010

Featured in Globes, Spheres and Curves May, 2010

Olympus E-3, 35 mm macro, 1/25 Sec, f/4.5

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.

    Y el desfile de horizontes continúa.
    Canción limpia con aire de libertad.
    Alma esperando el flujo de la Vida.
    Rosa (metáfora…sencilla y muy misteriosa a la vez….un abrazote para tí, Richard)

  • Que palabras tan hermosas! La idea de esperar el flujo de la vida le queda muy bien a este diseño y no se me había ocurrido. Ahora que lo dices veo a las pequeñas burbujas esperando al corriente.
    Muchas gracias Rosa. Te mando un fuerte abrazo :-)

    The soft lines and fluidity of the design are very appealing in this Richard. These water & oil experiments are just brilliant. Cheers, S.

  • Thanks again Sandra for your great comments. I like the way these evolved, and I must say this one is my favorite.

    Very nice whole series of your abstracts.

  • Thanks Anisja. I had a lot of fun creating these – you never know what designs will appear in the mixture.

    really well presented series of abstracts rich
    ive been studying them for a good half hour, lookin at the detailing, perfect circles, or blobs as the case may be and i really like the white ripples in this one.
    im a fan of the abstract macro work, but i havnt seen anything created like this before, really intriging stuff mate

  • Thank you for all your attention and thoughtful comments. These are a lot of fun to create because every time you stir things up the mixture comes up with a whole new set of designs. The secret to this one was using mineral rather than vegetable oil to achieve the transparent areas.
