These gorgeous ice crystals inside frozen bubble is created by Hope Carter on her front porch or back deck. To create it, Carter need to wait for right conditions: 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit and no wind, and then she’ll blow a bubble. As she told us, “The ice crystals start forming immediately after the bubble is blown. You must get back to your camera and focus in on where the crystals start forming in the bubble. Typically, this all happens anywhere from 30 seconds to two minutes before the entire bubble is frozen over. Temperature is the ultimate determining factor – the colder it is, the faster the process.”
Inspired by her own dog Norbert, US-based photographer and animal trainer Carli Davidson published her book “Shake” – a series of photo collection features close-up portraits of dogs in all of their drooling glory. Using a high speed camera, Carli was able to capture hilarious freeze-frame shots of various dogs mid-shake. Lips smack, ears flop, and drool flies – all the sudden, those ordinary dogs looks like star right out of a cartoon. Looking at those funny photos, it is so easy to shake off all the worries on your mind and offer you a couple minutes of wonder and laughter.
Starting today, you can buy the 144 page book on Amazon as well as shakethebook.
Milky PinUps, a retro pin-up calendar project by London based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz of AurumLight Studio is a set of high speed photographs of model wearing milk instead of traditional clothing. The artist explains that the project was, “Made with milk, frozen in time, and morphed into high fashion.” These “liquid illustrations” were inspired by the vintage pin-up illustrations from the 40’s and 50’s of artists Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargas, and more which were featured on Brown & Bigelow calendars. None of those photos are illustrated, all those gorgeous outfits are the result of layering hundreds of individual photographs which were taken with milk splashed across bodies. If you’re interested in learning how it’s done by Wieczorkiewicz himself, check Wieczorkiewicz’s milky pinup blog where you can also find his milk workshop information.
You can hear the sound, but how you see it? Similar to the equalizer on music player, Fabian Oefner, a talented Zurich based photographer came up with a creative way to make the sound waves visible. Or in other word, build a bridge between the acoustical and the visual world.
In this experimental project called “Dancing Colors“, Fabian attached a thin membrane on top of the loud speakers, and put some colored salt on it. Once the music starts playing, the salt starts vibrating and these odd looking sculptures form for just a fraction of a second. By connecting a microphone to the flash trigger, Oefner is able to capture these very brief moments where sound colorfully dances along the surface of the speaker.
