Mushroom Cloud

This is one of my ultra-violet waterdrop photos.

The photo was taken on my old Nikon D5200 camera with a Sigma 150mm macro lens, 2 off-camera SB700 flashes and a bit of black paper for the background.

To get the colours in the water, I used some ultraviolet dye - orange for the bowl and green for the drips. I taped a bit of UV bandpass glass onto the front of the flashes to illuminate the dye. I used a SplashArt water drop kit to make the drops. The finished image looked a bit dull so I used Photoshop to change the colour of the water in the bowl to red.

150mm · f/5.6 · 1/60th · ISO 300
