High Speed Liquid and Bubble Photographs by Heinz Maier

High Speed Liquid and Bubble Photographs by Heinz Maier
It never ceases to amaze me: just when I think I’ve seen every possible permutation of an artform or technique—be it figurative sculpture, stop motion animation, or in this case, high speed photography—somebody comes along and manages to do something radically different. German photographer Heinz Maier says that he began taking photographs less than a year ago in late 2010. He claims to not know what direction he’s heading in just yet, right now he’s experimenting with macro photography, mostly insects, animals, and these delicate high speed water droplets. Personally, I think he’s found a great direction. There are so many things happening here to make these photographs simply outstanding: the lighting, the colors, the occasional use of symmetry in the reflection of water, let alone the skill of knowing how to use the camera itself. It’s hard to believe these aren’t digital.

Photographer Jason Tozer Turns Soap Bubbles into Mysterious, Colorful Planets No these aren’t incredible new high-resolution photographs of newly discovered rainbow worlds beamed back from Hubble, they’re just soap bubbles, captured by the extremely talented photographer Jason Tozer in his London studio. Armed with a Hasselblad camera and a 135mm lens, Tozer has developed a his lighting technique that requires a giant dome of perspex to illuminate the reflective surface of each bubble. The more patterned surfaces on the bubbles are manipulated with a straw to create the various swirls and textures that might as well be the surface of Jupiter or Neptune. All of the colors and details you’re seeing are 100% genuine as Tozer very rarely relies on any sort of retouching or color correction. You can explore his website to see a few more photos, several of which have a fancy zoom feature giving you the full macro effect, he’s also done similar work with smoke and ice.

20 Captivating Photos Shot At Exactly The Right There are some things in life that make me feel dated (notice I didn’t use the word “old” LOL). For example, sending a fax, writing in cursive (with a pen) and talking on any phone with a cord (and twirling it around my fingers) are all things that kids born in 2011 might never have the opportunity to experience. I remember back in the days when people would say, “I wish I had my camera with me today, I could have taken some great pictures.” Now that practically everyone has a smartphone, we all have our cameras with us everywhere we go. That is evident in these photographs taken at exactly the right moment.
