This months meeting will be a hands on mini workshop by Darcy Pino
Anyone new to photography will want to try the technique of shooting oil and water. As every single image will be different, the possibility of capturing a few beautiful shots is good.
The fact that oil and water don't mix makes every image so different from the one before, and depending on how often you wish to change the background, you can shoot away until you have a wide range of images on the theme.
It becomes rather mesmerizing after a while as you watch the slow movement of the oil globules as they glide their way over the water- what better way to relax and enjoy yourself!
What you will need
- Camera with lens - a macro lens works best, but it's probably not in everyone's kit bag, although for this exercise any telephoto lens that gives good zoom could be used. The closer detail you can see,the better.
- Tripod - Vital for stability to avoiding camera shake.
- A remote shutter release, or shutter release will be helpful.
