[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
My first attempt at photographing oil on water.
The YouTube tutorials said you need a macro lens or extension tubes and I don’t have either, so I am quite pleased with the result.

The tray of water must be at least 12 inches above the colourful background (in this case tartan) so it’s out of focus, largest aperture helps limit the DoF.
You need to float something on the water surface to get the manual focusing right.
I lit the background with a torch and then added drops of olive oil and used a 2 sec delay to eliminate camera shake.
I hope you like it because I am going to post a few more

Olá Jack,
The first show is lovely and so I hope the experiments that will come make us dream about how far this galaxy is.

Hi Jack
Of course I like it.
Experimenting new techniques is great.
