Soap bubbles with coloured refraction from card underneath. I used liquid hand-soap in warm water.

Although these images are highly processed in Photoshop CS6 they are also the result of some considerable effort in photographing them. The set-up is quite involved and I had difficult getting the bubbles and refractions from the coloured card (underneath) right. Because the bubbles from the soap kept dissipating quickly I had to have a plastic tube in my mouth as I shot the other end was in the water dish, so I could 'blow bubbles' as I shot them.

Can we have a photo of the photographer blowing bubble while simultaneously photographing them because I think that should win the 'Mad Photographer Of The Year' award! GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin


Great shot. Love the colours and distortions.

I may be mad, but there is method in my madness. Actually, it was a tube from my mountain-bike hydration sac (that's a drinking bottle to you). The only technical difficulty is that I'm used to sucking on it (when riding my bike), so I was in danger here of sucking some soapy water!Smile

Bet that would make you pedal faster to the nearest loo lol. like your idea! next time try DVD's in the water and shine a torch or sunlight through the window will do, you can also buy cheap coloured plastic mirrors in different colours to experiment with. I try lots of different idea's and why not if the technology is there use it!. nice one like it, thank you for your vote on my pinball wizard, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
