This is a short abstract experimental film involving a black oily blob and a reverse lens adaptor on a Canon 60D. The reverse adaptor gives quite a cool look, and gives you the ability to get really close to your subject with an intense depth of field.
This little clip was shot at night with a couple of desk lamps, some diffusers and a bit of experimenting with the magnets to get the oil to move as it does. You can pretty much get the oil to do whatever you want if you have powerfull and enough magnets, I only had one magnet so I couldn't really do too much with it, but if I ever do another ferrofluid project I will make sure I have more magnets.
