Ruth Carll's picture

Blue Tango

This is water soluble suminagashi ink in water. I use this ink because of the very reason these images sometimes get constructive criticism about focus. That is that the ink is dissolving rapidly into the water and therefore has a soft, ephemeral and surreal look. The inks are dropped in at different rates and through an oil barrier which provides some control. Then I flip the final image to be 'trees'. Enjoy!

These images are just magical, Ruth! They're bouncing with energy. Beautiful light in this one. You should take up painting... ;-)

I wish! One reason I took up photography was because I am so unskilled with a brush. And pencil. And a crayon. ......

Me too. I reckon photography is painting for cheats!

You have created great depth with this image Ruth. I love the detail and texture in the foreground subject.
