    Hurt my back last night so i can't really go anywhere. Decided it was a good day to try out an experiment i've been wanting to do for a while now.

    I like it, especially #1, but I feel like there's some more lighting to be had. Seems a little dark.

    If I recall, a light in the water (out of frame, obviously) may light the water pretty neat. Like a sealed white LED setup. I'm sure you could find something that you could, worse case, make waterproof with some silicone for a buck or two.

    Just my 0.02$

    actually you dont need to put a light in the water, you just need to bounce light into the water but not off the background like i was doing it.

    if you bounce light perpendicular to the camera into the water and light the background with a different color you will get the effect you were going for.

    what i did was slightly different which was have the background one color with the water, and then highlight the liquid that came out of the pool. thats why you see the red color in some areas of the shots.
