Messing around with ice cubes, cooking oil and washing up liquid. All placed in an orange plastic cup and lit from below.
A big thanks to everyone who nominated me for the Photoblogies 2007, I’m up for Best Abstract Photography.

    Yes I was going to comment that this looks like an emulsion. Very vibrant colours really make it an eye opener of an image. Your thought process is ideally suited for abstract photography as your creativity can be projected from a mental image to a physical state that you can capture.

  • Hi, I just found you via milou’s site and there’s some great stuff on here. This particular picture is great, I particularly like the warmth to it all (ironic seeing how it’s ice!).

  • And yet it kinda looks like molten lava.

  • Nice experimentation which works really well. As Jon mentioned it looks warm and soothing, nice.

  • Another fantastic abstract macro.

  • Fantastic shot … again.

  • Another great abstract image and interestingly different from your previous shot. Very pleasant. Excellent design.

  • I love yours abstracts shots man!
    Lovely orange and nice forms!

  • Awesome abstract, perfect in everyway…
    How did you do that?
