Ink in Water


I shot this little video through a clear glass bowl filled with water sitting in a bright, sunny window.
I dripped single drops of blue and red food colouring into the water one at a time.
I then brought the footage into a video editing program called Final Cut Pro,
and edited the images to a song called Spanish Armada by Ratatat.
I boosted the contrast a bit and sped up a few shots, but did not add any other effects.

I actually shot this as a camera test for my newly acquired Canon T2i - if you are
interested in the specs (f-stop, ISO etc), you can see all the details on my vimeo channel
which I share with my creative collaborator and talented cinematographer, Maya Bankovic.
There is another camera test also posted there which was shot by her.
