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.
