Bursting Spectrum of Colors Soap Bubbles
I will never look at a bubble in the same way again…much the same way I don’t look at balloons the same way.
Looking like visions captured from space, it goes without saying, photographer Fabian Oefner, has a way with bubbles.
In his project ‘Iridient’, Oefner uses a sugar funnel to blow up a soapy mixture from an ordinary children’s pot of bubbles. He then snaps the resulting state into two sets – immediately before then the burst.
So how does he get that amazing spectrum of colors?
Oefner applies specialized lighting techniques using illuminated panels to surround the subject and reflect the surface in a particular way. As for the shooting the ephemeral explosion, a purpose-built high speed flash unit is required, about a couple of hundred photos and some persistence.
