Before (azure/turquoise hue)
After (blackened hue)
Reflection of sodium bicarbonate captured in mirror positioned under oil.
The positioning of the mirror allowed for a greater impression of depth, and a greater ambiguity as to what the viewer would perceive.
An observation was made only after footage was reviewed.
The images captured by the microscope camera are subject to automatic contrast correction.
Before the very ‘white’ sodium bicarbonate was added to the image, the overall impression was azure/turquoise.
The contrast is supremely powerful.
I will explore this videographic phenomenon further.
