Getting Emulsional Over Colors

Getting Emulsional Over Colors

These colors were created by forming an emulsion of cooking oil and water drops on the shiny side of a CD, and then shining a bright light on to the mixture. I used my 60 mm macro lens focused as closely as possible. The colors can be changed by partially blocking the light, and also by using a mirror to change where the light goes. This is fun stuff to play with. This is straight photography (whatever that is), and not created on a computer, although I used Photoshop to adjust contrast, saturation and remove tiny bubbles and specks of dust. It’s not possible to go to the Canadian Rockies or Baja California every day.

More of these photographs of colorful emulsions are in my pretentiously titled Emulsion Art album.

Emulsional Colors

Emulsional Colors

This was a wood splitting day not a photography day so I went to the archives for this colorful shot. I’m a big fan of bright colors, and years back I played around for a time with colorful emulsions.

I’ve created an album with psychedelic content that can be seen here if you like this sort of thing. www.flickr.com/photos/9422878@N08/sets
