An unseen agent
stirs the very foundations
to send smoke signals
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
How do you do that?
It’s simply incredible, the way you work that camera, woman.
Thanks, Daphne! This is a fun one to do with kids around. It’s just a chunk of dry ice, a dark-colored bowl of water with food coloring, and a bit of oil on top to help make smoke rings. Take pictures on a macro setting, out in the afternoon sun with some shadow in the background for added drama.
For variety, add or substitute different fluids. Milk foams, bubble liquid, well, that’ll be posted in another day or two, alcohol causes the ice to float and spin…
The last time I did this, a couple years back, I did a bit of video, too. This bit of ice is floating on some cooking wine, I think.
