All was done on a CD.










Last one is to put it into perspective, that's a needle there.

Colourful creations here.
My only suggestion would be to ensure adequate depth of field to appreciate as much of the droplets in focus as possible.
Well done.

Great concept. jpeg artifacting is killing it online, but I'm sure these would make awesome prints.

These are quite nice. The first one I am not quite sure of (mushed chocolate cake?) but the rest have great color and possibilities. I would clean up the last one some though, it looks like dust on the surface between the droplets. The eye picks these up as distractions. More DoF would also be nice.

Great job!

What lighting did you use for this?

I don't have any external flash, so I have a shielded table lamp that I am moving around and trying to re-create this.
Im assuming you took this in the dark, as Im getting too many reflections in daylight..

External flash + a self made reflector out of regular A4 paper (the whole sheet as one big reflector). Used normal indoor lighting as pilot (for focusing). And stopped down quite a lot to kill the pilot.

I was afraid you would say that as I don't have an external flash Too expensive..
I tried to have a go using the table lamp, but it didn't quite work, too much light.
Im going to have a think and see what I can come up with to try and get around the flash issue as you have really inspired me on those shots - I think they are a brilliant idea..

Too much light? What do you mean exactly? You can always stop down to reduce the amount of light.
