Excellent work! You've definitely mastered this one and your choices of abstract focal planes is wonderful.

How far is the glass from the object you want refracted. Are those drops h2o only or is it 50-50 glycerin and h2o? Which liquid works better? Sorry for blasting you with these questions. You're just experimenting... i forgot. :|


This is my first try, but here's the set up that I used this time... I borrowed a pane of glass from a small picture frame, cleaned it and treated it with Rain-X to help form the droplets. Then I suspended the pane about 8-10 inches above the picture. My first attempt to make the drops failed miserably as I tried just using a medicine dropper. The dropper could only make big drops, so I actually used the corner of a twist-tie dipped in water to make the small drops. From there is was just a matter of framing it and I chose a slight angle as I wanted the drops to gradually go oof.
