It’s pretty easy these days to appear to be a good photographer. Instagram filters and Photoshop have been helping people moonlight as photographers since the day they became accessible to the masses. We know there’s a real talent to being a photographer though, and that’s why it’s refreshing to see this sheer quality on show!
“I have been trying to capture drops with double meanings using a variety of subjects and objects,” Rosenberg says. “I am expanding past pencils and have used water droppers, glitter glue droppers, matches, wine bottles, glasses, red Solo cups, and wire. Sometimes the drops are whimsical, playing on a familiar pun or idiom, and other times I have tried to capture more meaningful messages. One of my favourites is ‘Unity Drop’ [below]’ – bringing the colours of the world together in harmony.”
“I started experimenting with placing different colour paper behind where the water would drop. I would literally sit holding a pencil or object in my left hand dipping it into the water while shooting pictures on my camera with my right hand. It is a lot of trial and error.”
