Greetings All,


One day I noticed that my camera emits a reddish light for auto-focus as it records. I decided to try Water-ITC using the bug light on our back porch as a light source in conjunction with the reddish light of the camera. When this proved promising, I set up in the laundry room so I wouldn’t be limited by time of day / night.



Here’s a slightly different way of taking Water-ITC images you may wish to try.

My setup is as follows:

I use a yellow fluorescent (curly cue) bug light in a ceiling fixture. I have the opaque globe attached to the fixture as one normally would.

I take a 12 quart stainless steel cooking pot and fill it with approximately 2 inches of water.

I place the cooking pot on a TV tray.

I set up my camera on a tripod in such a way as to allow for movement of the TV tray as I agitate the water.

I use a small 9 LED flashlight that emits a bluish-white light. These flashlights are widely available from your favorite department store and other places.

I use McCormick’s brand Neon Food Coloring…but I’m sure regular food coloring will work just fine.

Before I start recording video, I place One Drop of Blue Food Coloring in the water. I do not thoroughly mix it in with the water; but instead allow it to free float.

I then turn on the LED flashlight and determine an appropriate angle of reflection when recording.

When everything looks good…I turn on the camera and move the TV tray gently back and forth.

I take approximately 10 seconds of video at a time. I continue to record in this manner until the food coloring is completely diluted in the water.

Then I review the videos frame by frame for images.


Please try this if you can. The results are well worth it. You can experiment with other colors and color combinations.


Here is a sample of some images from this process. While there are many faces, I did encircle some of the prominent ones:

Since the pics look small on the site; saving them to your computer will let you view them in a larger format.

This woman appears to be looking back over her right shoulder.

For those of you that may think adding food coloring might lead to false positives....here are a couple of images using only water and a blue-white light:

These are absolutely amazing, Ron. Incredibly clear. Awesome job. Using food coloring is a very creative idea, too. I look forward to trying it out myself in future experiments.
