Day #2020Title: Invisi-Bubble
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from LHS, through Stofen softbox @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from RHS, through Stofen softbox @ 1/64
Notes: Last weekend I bought some tiny little gel beads from the market. When you put them in water, they gradually increase in size and eventually swell to about ten times their original volume. And when they sit in water, their refractive index is almost the same – they disappear and become invisible. It’s only when you see the water/air boundary that they magically reappear before your eyes. With a suitable coloured background, they make an intriguing abstract, perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #31 – Invisible.
