Jack Long’s Water Curtain Tutorial

By fotosiamo on May 30th 2012


Water, just like powder makes for beautiful photography. Water photographer extraordinaire, Jack Long, wrote a tutorial on DIY Photography how to build a water curtain that you can use for product photography.

There are essentially three main components that you will need:

  • 30″ of 3″ PVC pipe
  • PVC fittings from 3″ to 1″ barb
  • High volume water pump


The trick, Jake says, is to cut a slit on the pipe and use a filter baffle to make the water flow nicely.


Be sure to read the rest of the DIY Photography’s tutorial for more details.

You can also see the rest of his gallery on Flickr.
