Waterdrop Photography

Last Saturday, as mentioned in the previous post, I've met two of my school friends to do some photography together. We have tried to take some pictures of water drops and some of them (especially the first one in the queue) turned out really well :D

First we had to make a framework to put a water-dispenser/pipette in it so the drops would always fall onto the same spot which is important for the focus to be correct.
When the whole setup was, after two hours, finally complete we started taking some pictures! And not every picture was great. It sometimes took half an hour of shooting until we finally got one we liked and that was interesting...
After some time we tried something else by putting this water dispenser which makes drops in intervals. We managed to create pictures where a water drop fell down and got pushed back up by the water below and then another drop hit it from above again! These shots looked like little plates or spaceships (or mushrooms ^^)

Here are some more generous shots we took with a normal pipette :)

In the following pictures I tried again something else myself: I held a screw above a nut and dropped them so the nut would hit the water first and make a splash which would then look like the splash of a bouncing screw!
It took lots of attempts but in the end it worked out :)

Waterdrops and frosty, frosty weather!!

Just yesterday I stayed until midnight at friends doing some really cool photography with water drops! The results are really nice but I can't show you yet since they still need some editing and at the moment I don't have them yet, they are still on my friends computer..

But I have some other nice pictures of really frosty weather for you when I went for a lovely walk with my mother last weekend :)

Winter came this week!

It was an awesome week! First of all I got a drawing tablet really cheap and I was editing and painting a lot! You'll see one I've made below ;)
Then, on Monday, we went with our class to the theatre to see "the visit" by the swiss play writer Dürrenmatt. I've already seen it once but this production was a lot more interesting, modern and fun to watch!
Next week we are going to have two concerts with the BigBand of our school where we are about to "fight" the Jazz Orchestra of the Kanti in Aarau. I made some posters to hang up around the school :)

Yesterday evening I also met with some classmates of mine to cook something together and watch a movie. Later on in the evening I went with a friend who was there as well to take some pictures for an art project which they ought to do for school. They wanted to do some light painting with lcd light that they've put onto a bicycle wheel. The results look really cool and I will show you as soon as I have them too!
