Sometimes random shit happens and looks cool. While I was setting up for a new photo for #projectweed, I became impatient waiting for a cheap glass vase I had spray painted to dry, and put it into water … resulting in traces of paint floating off and me swearing. Then saw the paint swirling on the surface so quickly shoot it … because it looked cool. Do you need any other reason?
In this setup you are actually looking straight down through layers of clear acrylic trays filled with water. The pro vases in the background ar bolted onto a vertical panel that here looks like the ‘floor’. Note some of the freaky distortion at the base of the foreground vase as the light bends going through the water.
