Title: Oil Drop Adventures

About the Photo:

In this series I set myself the goal of creating beautiful colour images which are joyfully minimalistic, refined and artistic but still look organic. They are examples from my ongoing photographic exploration of the refractive effects of oil floating on water.
The project is minimalist in ethos, both in method of creation and in final style. It is inexpensive and eco-friendly, requiring no travel and using tiny amounts of simple materials. The shapes and arrangement were physically real and are not digitally created. Removal of blemishes in post processing gave the refined aesthetic.
