A few months ago, I found myself watching a random video on science experiments you can do from home. My thought process led me to believing that some of the experiments I was watching would be great to photograph. I tried a couple of the experiments and decided that it would be a great activity to do with a group of photographers as everyone would end up with different results. Therefore, I went ahead and planned a workshop for the Douglas Photographic Society. That workshop was supposed to be this weekend, however due to Covid-19 we have had to cancel the event. This upset me as I had been looking forward to running the event. Then it came to me that these are home experiments. We can still do them whilst social distancing from home. So I made the following video to show the club members how to do the first of the three experiments I had planned. Then I realized that there are many other photographers stuck at home and not sure what to do with themselves, so I decided to share it with the world.
In the next few weeks I will make more of these videos with different experiments so make sure you subscribe to get notified about them. You can also check out other ideas for photography to do from home here.
