These three photos are part of a ‘coin drop’ series that I loved. The set-up involved natural light, a plate with 3mm of water on the floor, two feet from my camera, which was resting on a book, and a 5p coin dropped over and over from a height. I took hundreds of practice shots to get the aperture and shutter speed right, but despite preparations there was still a lot of trial and error- out of over 400 photos, only a handful came out well.
