Lomo Droplets



Today, I felt like experimenting, so for the first time, I tried droplet photography. I'm pretty happy with it. Definitely something I'd like to try again. These were processed with my Lomo filter again (if you like the look, check out this tutorial).




This is what happens when you use Lomo processing on black and white photos.








I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!






In case you're curious, here's my setup:


A water-filled cup with a tiny hole in it inside a bandanna hung from my tripod over a pan half full of water with a mirror in the bottom. The pink came from a metal tin lid with checkers on it, but you can use anything you want for the reflections. I used my reflector because the room is so poorly lit.


It would be much easier to put the pan in a sink and turn the faucet on to a very slow drip, but my sinks were in use so I had to improvise.
