oil & water - tutorial coming tomorrow

I finally figured out how to do this! I've had "oil and water" on my photography to-do list for probably 6 months now, and I saw a post on it earlier this week (was it the Pioneer Woman)? Anyway, my set up is a little different, and I promise to share it with you all tomorrow. You'll be surprised how easy it is, no kidding!

It's a snow day again today, so the computer and I are parting ways now. :-)

Be sure to come back tomorrow! :-)

How cool! I am always inspired by your photography adventures, and I postively fall in love with you blog header every time I see it! "Enjoy" the snow ;)

Yay, I am looking forward to it. Hopefully, it will go better than my water drop experiment. I don't have enough time to do that one....at least, at this point.

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

That is so, so neat! I can not wait to see how you did it!

Brooke said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOOOVE it!
My mom used to make us tornadoes in a jar. It sounds weird, but it was water and oil in a mason jar with a few drops of food coloring. Kept us entertained for hours. (Were times like WAYYY simpler back then or what!)
Anyway, this photo reminds me of our "tornadoes." FUN.

I got a new camera for Christmas and asked my blogger friends for tips or blogs that could help me learn more about photography! I was referred here! I love your shots and love, love the party of three challenge...may have to join you with that one! Three kids...9,7, and 4...just had a big snow and took many shots! My blog is more of a decorating blog, but I am so excited to improve the images that I post! I am your newest follower and I added you to my sidebar, so I can get all your great tips! My camera is a Nikon D5000. www.threepixielane.blogspot.com "Over the Hills and Through the Snow" is the first shots I have taken with my camera! I know it will take much practice! Glad to have found you!

Tiffany said...

thanks for coming by :-) at first I didn't want to put it because I don't want to claim something and you posted it first but Im excited to see your tutorial because I know it will be excellent and detailed. I love how circular yours looks. I actually quick selected some of them and added extras to make it look like its dripping lol :-)!

Stacey said...

Seriously?

That's all I have to say.

Angela said...
