Liquid Jewel is a new project by Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner (previously) as part of his ongoing exploration of manipulating paint with natural forces such as sound, centrifugal force, and even magnetism. In these new images the photographer turned his attention toward air pressure by harnessing the power of the popped balloon. Oefner covered modeling balloons in thick layers of acrylic paint and photographed each one milliseconds after popping it with a needle. The resulting effect captures the paint as its driven simultaneously inward and outward. See more over on Behance.

This is a great high speed capture by photographer Arvin Rahimzadeh who snapped a photo of this spinning, water-soaked tennis ball that exemplifies the geometry behind a golden Logaritmical spiral. Neat!

As part of an ongoing exploration of high speed photography, Jon Smith has been filling standard incandescent light bulbs with various objects, liquids and other substances before causing them to explode in front of his camera. In some of his more interesting shots the photographer experiments by first dipping the bulb in paint, or carefully layering different colors of sand to create unexpected patterns as everything is hurled through the air. A number of Smith’s photos are being turned into metal prints which will be on exhibition at Fisher’s Town Hall later this year. See much more in his photostream.

Photographer Pierre Carreau was born in 1972 near Paris surrounded by a family of artists including a photographer, painter and sculptor, all of which would influence his creative upbringing as well as his artistic output. As a child he was always fascinated by the manifestation of waves and the diversity of color, shape, and size found in each of them. Some of his first photography projects involved work for surfing magazines and water sport equipment manufacturers.

Carreau’s work has now moved into fine art as he shoots waves with a variety of high speed cameras using various macro and wide angle lenses, capturing water shapes that appear more sculptural than liquid. These are truly some of the most remarkable wave photos I’ve ever seen and you can see many, many more over on his website. He also has a number of fine art prints available over at Clic Gallery.

Belgium-based photographer and designer Manon Wethly keeps a wonderful Instagram account where more traditional landscapes of the European countryside are punctuated with the occasional airborne beverage. No liquid is safe from being catapulted in front of her camera, Wethly uses coffee, milk, juice, water and other drinks to get the perfect mix of form and color to make some pretty fantastic shots. She says most of the photos are captured with her iPhone though she’s also begun experimenting with larger cameras. See more of her high speed photography over on her blog.

Black Hole is the lastest project from Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner who is known for his photographic work with vibrantly colored paints, most notably manipulating it with sound and magnetic ferrofluid. For this latest project Oefner connected a metallic rod to an electric drill which was then covered in paint. Activating the drill then caused to paint to fling violently outward which he then captured with a precisely timed camera.

The motion of the paint happens in a blink of an eye, the images you see are taken only millisecond after the drill was turned on. To capture the moment, where the paint forms that distinctive shape, I connected a sensor to the drill, which sends an impulse to the flashes. These specialized units are capable of creating flashes as short as a 1/40000 of a second, freezing the motion of the paint.

To see a video of the entire process you can visit his page on Behance, and you can see many more high resolution photographs over on his website. If you want prints just get in touch.

Update: Now with video.

New High Speed Liquid Splash Photographs by Markus Reugels

December 14, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I never tire of seeing German photographer Markus Reugels’ (previously here and here) continued experiments with water splashes. It’s immediately apparent when looking at some of these recent photos from the last few months that his lighting, color, and timing techniques have continued to evolve, as each image is more impossibly complex than the last. See much more of his recent work here.
