The folks over at Shanks FX (previously) and PBS Digital Studios put together this great DIY video on how to make giant bubbles including some cool slow motion clips of enormous bubbles popping at night. They even invented a “bubble control wand” with an array of small fans. Another helpful tutorial is NightHawkInLight’s How to Make Giant Bubbles.

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 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. 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.

You might remember Berlin-based photographer Bjoern Ewers for his role in art directing the Inside Instruments project for the Berlin Philharmonic that went viral a few months ago. His latest work involves a series of bubble photographs titled Orbital that capture the hypnotizing whorls of colorful soap film in contrast with a stark black background. If you’re interested in prints he has several over on Artflakes. (via behance)
