A few Sunday's ago, Steve and I had some fun, photographing something new or at least new to me.
Steve set it all up, made the solution for soapy bubbles, and I had the privilege of capturing many images. I won't show them all, but here are some.
It started out like this, a dark cloth backdrop, a small black lens cap as a base for the bubbles. This is what you would see when observing from the sidelines. When I was ready to shoot, Steve held an umbrella flash over the bubble.
It seemed that each bubble started out forming these coloured bands.
Some of them showed very pastel colors. I should add that these are mostly exactly as they came out of the camera.
Some had distinct gold swirls in the.
Each one was different.
Some times the patterns were tightly swirled together.
This is possibly my favourite image. You can still see some of the banding, but the swirls of color are mesmerizing.
Remember, this is what the human eye saw, without the aid of a flash. Here we made the bubble on a small glass dish.
Since this post is all about color, remember this:
We’re all a little broken, but last time I checked, broken crayons still color.
