I've just recently tried my hand at this type of photography, the results can be amazing. All you need is a clear glass bowl, water, washing up liquid and cooking oil. Add a backdrop, maybe colourful wrapping up paper, coloured feathers, or basically anything colourful. Ideally a macro lens or extension tubes, or for an alternative try a reversing ring to turn your current lens into a macro. Check the internet for oil and water inspiration. Have fun with it.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
