Happiness is the light on the water.
One of our photography groups has been very active in giving us weekend projects to help us through the social isolation. This is the first weekend I’ve been able to take part, and it’s a project I’ve tried before a few years ago but for some reason never posted.
The idea is to shoot a colourful backdrop through water droplets on glass. There’s a little bit of prep involved and you have to get the distances right. I haven’t done a good job here, my droplets are too small and I really struggled with the focus. I blame a bad shoulder and my eyesight not being what it used to be.
There are a few shots that I haven’t included here, one in particular I want to share separately. Part of the reason I was keen to jump into this project is that I wanted to create a new piece of art for a specific wall in my apartment. And right at the end of the shoot, I got the shot I wanted. It’s nothing like these, but it’s just what I wanted.
I’ll share it with you soon.
