Crown Without A King

EDIT: AUG 31st 2008, I had to watermark it since I found it all over the web without my permission :[

It was a pretty hard task to get these images (nope, just showing off a little), since my equipment is REEEEALLY ... low-tech. But hey: Necessity is the mother of invention, isn't it? Enough said - enjoy!

Things involved: milk, water, a big jar, Canon Powershot A95 + macro converter lens, 2x 500 W halogen lamps, black board and PS of course

milk was dripped into water with a pipette. while the milk was decending in the water, a series of shots were taken. The background is darkened with a piece of simple black board.

wowowowowow....hey man. I was just wondering if I could use this for a book Im goiing to submit to Ill give you full credits. Or maybe--even better. If you wouldn't mind, it would nice for you to make a picture about a crown like this one. The concept is this:

A prince: he looks like he is around sixteen. good-boy sorta look. and a crown. the title of the book is the Forgotten Prince.

:0 tnxs (btw, if u dun wanna it is totally fine with me, at least i gotta apreaciate ur art :) )

i still can't believe that this is milk in water. i watched the gif and i'm amazed that it turned out this way. I really think you were innovative in this project. I actually appreciate that it's not photoshopped at all because it's hard to find images like this that aren't. (not saying photoshop it bad)

You're a true artist. Kudos my friend!!!

Thank you very much. I wouldn't say photoshopped at all, though. I stamped out some distracting parts in the background. :blush:

I would like permission to composite your image with some of my work.

How can I contact you to discuss?
