The moment just before the formation of the crown. The disk on the bottom is the primer drop of glycol. The surface is black plexi. Lighting is from 4 Yongnuo YN-560's behind a piece of opaque white plexi.

Solid Surface crown using heavy cream & red food coloring. I actually used an eye dropper for the drop on this one, instead of my mariotte siphon.

I met up with NJ and took him on his first wander through Vancouver's Strathcona neighbourhood. May 19, 2013.

In looking through the 500+ shots from 9/3 it seems as I have at least a few keepers in the group. A true testament to the abilities of the Stop Shot to repeat results, here is another one of the better ones. The umbrella in this shot is more upright than in 'Purple Perfection'.

Thanks RoyalDuck for the Title.

One of the easier shots to accomplish. You can do these without any special timing equipment. This particular shot is using heavy cream (lightly colored blue) being dropped onto a piece of black glass. In order to get the crown, a 'primer' drop is necessary in the landing zone. I added 3 drops of food coloring to the outer edges of the primer drop (red, yellow, and purple), this adds the color.

EXPLORED #1

 

Same type of shot as the last one, this time 4 colors were used in the drop zone (red, green, yellow, and purple).

 

Thanks for looking, commenting, and fav'ing my photos! I appreciate ALL!

 

Somebody on Reddit mentioned that it looks like the Google Chrome logo exploded... I thought that was an interesting observation... it kinda does, doesn't it?

Glycol Crown. I am working out a new idea for my glycol crowns. If it works out, look for some new & different stuff soon! Thanks for all the comments & favs.

One more from my 'Liquid Mercury' set. Maybe I'm just in a mood... but I really love the sterile feel of these. It's so cold, and metallic.

For this shot, I added some yellow coloring in the drop zone. Drop color was blue.

This is a similar shot to 'Triplets' that I posted the other day... but I like this one better. I did not actually release 5 drops from the dropper, some extra ones fell out due to the duration of the last pulse.

Classic 2 drop collision, where a falling drop of liquid collides with a column of liquid rising from a pool. Column is caused by the first falling drop. Timing is the trick to getting a shot like this.

This is a glycol crown shot on black plexi with a single drop of red food coloring on one side of the drop zone.

Glycol collision against a stained glass background. Thanks for looking!

From the end of 1961 to 1988, Vasa was housed in a temporary structure called Wasavarvet (The Vasa Shipyard) where she was treated with polyethylene glycol.

One of the keepers from the first session with the new rig. The new rig is much more pleasant to work with, and I now have room to maneuver completely around the rig on all sides. For this shot I used a piece of my stained glass as the backdrop. I shot the 6 Yongnuo's through the glass. Liquid was glycol.

I like the way the crown is distorted on this shot. This one came from the archives. I have thousands of shots that have never been ran through post, for one reason or another...

 

Thanks to all for your comments, favs, etc.

This is a 3 drop collision shot using Purple/Red coloring. The symmetry of this shot is why I like it so much. Thanks for looking!

SD-40 5206 leads 5012, 5028 and 5221 on a unit glycol train on a hazy day towards the close of winter, 1993. This was a CN haulage train operated by the Burlington Northern.

This is a previously unposted shot from my 'dry ice' series (you know, the series that cracked my damn tank - LOL). You can see the bottom nozzle peaking up out of the fog. Liquid used was colored propylene glycol.

Although this may look like some kind of Photoshop trickery, I assure you this is exactly how the shot was captured. Not only is the apparent 'munching' of the bubble funny, but the shape of the drop collision is also oddly unique. To me it looks like some kind of odd helmet wearing creature that apparently likes to eat soap bubbles. Thanks for looking!

Look out Jack... I'm on to you. ;^)

 

Played with some dry ice today. I have a few more, and then that's it. I cracked the bottom glass on my tank, so now I have to completely rebuild it. I may go with plexi-glass this time, if I can figure out how to bond it together. Note to self - super cold frozen CO2 plus hot water plus glass - NOT A GOOD IDEA.

LOL

A droplet of polyethylene glycol gel has "eaten" the surrounding threads of dried gel around it, and has isolated itself in a sort of tense equilibrium...

I swear, I could stare at this shot for hours. It took over 500 shots to nail this one. It is definitely the best one of the day. I have a few other keepers from the session, I'll get them up soon. I'd love to hear comments on this one. Thanks!

This is what happens when a ball collides with white paint. These shots are harder than they look. :-)

From the archives... this shot was a predecessor to one of my most popular crowns (Four Color Crown). It was taken 10 frames prior to that capture. I was only using 3 drops of food coloring at that point, and added the fourth (purple).
