Ready for a fun Project??

Well I'm glad because I just finished one and it's SO easy and the results are SO awesome!! I posted my 365 weekly link-up yesterday and a LOT of people were impressed with my SOOC shot of the back of a CD....so the other day while searching through groups on Flickr I came acros the coolest photo, and it turned out it was just water on the back of a CD!! Water "bubbles up" when dropped/placed on a disc and gives a cool effect when photographed with all the vibrant lighting that reflects off the disc. So I just got a medicine dropper and dropped different sized water beads all over a disc...placed the disc on a white sheet of paper and propped another white sheet at a 90 degree angle to the sheet my disc was on (to bounce my flash off of) and used my 28-85mm macro to get these cool shots:
My newest project
water/disc project


Seeeeee??? This is so cool! I hope it inspires you guys to try it because it's easy and look at how cute! If you DO try it leave a link here later with the link to your blog so I can check out your results!! Have a good SUNDAY!!
