Golf Glass

Golf Glass, a photo by Richard Le Sauvage on Flickr.

This photo of ‘Golf Glass’ is a macro photo of a golf ball in a small plastic cup.
To get this photo I placed a plastic cup on a table and filled with water. Had a background of white table slats to enhance the reflection of light and colours from the water. I then placed a drop of blue food dye into the cup and mixed the water to achieve a light blue colour. Then placed the golf ball into the water and topped the water up so the glass was full. This creates a slight dome caused by the water’s surface tension which refracts the light entering the water and shows us a skewed image of the ball on the surface.

Iceberg Ahead

This photo of ‘Iceberg Ahead’ is a macro photo of a crushed ice block.
To get this photo I placed a glass jar upside down on a table in the sun to heat up. Had a background of black mesh to enhance the colours from the ice. I then placed a few drops of blue food dye onto the jar before adding the crushed ice. Whilst the ice began to melt, the camera was set up on a tripod to make sure manual focus was set. The melting ice combined with the dye created the base of the photo or the sea. The remaining ice creates the icebergs floating on the sea.
