Using a lighting studio, I was able to use the black curtain in a curved formation to recreate the background of the Harold Edgerton photograph, ‘milk drop’. The light was controlled using a snoot on a spotlight. This technique of the black curtain and snoot on the spotlight was also used with the cards photographs. The tap, on the other hand, required a delicate set up of a black cloth, while two iPhone torches were directed towards the tap and the water. All photographs used a light meter and were taken several times with surrounding settings to ensure a clear photograph.
