Inside Instruments

March 8, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This print campaign for the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra uses macro photographs taken inside the cramped spaces of instruments making the inner workings of a violin, cello, flute, and pipe organ appear vast and spacious, almost as if you could walk around inside them. So wonderfully done. Art directed by photographer Bjorn Ewers, you can see more over on Behance.

Update: The photography is by Mierswa Kluska and the original concept came from Mona Sibai and Björn Ewers.

Water Drop Pillars by Markus Reugels

March 3, 2012

Christopher Jobson

In his continued experiments with water photography Markus Reugels (previously) has developed a method of releasing precisely timed water drops that collide to form pillar-like structures. The setup involves three perfectly synchronized valves and three individual gel-covered flashes that all fire in sequence with the camera’s shutter to create the images you see here. Wild stuff. See much more here.

Surreal Macro Photographs of Insects

February 3, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Malaysian photographer Lee Peiling lives and works in Tanzania where she picked up a camera for the first time just three years ago. Among her quickly growing body of work are these macro photographs of insects that look almost like paintings due to her use of a focus technique known as bokeh. If you like these, definitely check out more of her Small World series.

High Speed Liquid and Bubble Photographs by Heinz Maier

October 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

It never ceases to amaze me: just when I think I’ve seen every possible permutation of an artform or technique—be it figurative sculpture, stop motion animation, or in this case, high speed photography—somebody comes along and manages to do something radically different. German photographer Heinz Maier says that he began taking photographs less than a year ago in late 2010. He claims to not know what direction he’s heading in just yet, right now he’s experimenting with macro photography, mostly insects, animals, and these delicate high speed water droplets. Personally, I think he’s found a great direction. There are so many things happening here to make these photographs simply outstanding: the lighting, the colors, the occasional use of symmetry in the reflection of water, let alone the skill of knowing how to use the camera itself. It’s hard to believe these aren’t digital. See much more of his work here.

Compressed 2: Pulsating Magnetic Ferro Fluids and Soap Bubbles

August 29, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Filmmaker Kim Pimmel (previously) has just posted another one of his magnetic short films that he calls “analog generative experiments”. In this new video he combined dish soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid and filmed it with a macro lens to create some astonishing, pulsating effects. I can hardly believe this isn’t digital. Wow. (thnx, kim!)
