Effervescence - J. K. Ribout Photography

September 16th, 2016

A couple years back, I had done something like this with water and liquid soap. It turned out relatively well, but I have no idea where those images ended up. 

This time around, I literally bought bubble solution. Which I later found out was a bit pointless considering I could have just used water and liquid soap. Either way - I couldn't remember what steps I had to take to properly capture the interesting colours that form within the filter. Eventually it was evident that I would need 3 major things: a bubble wand (or a DIY version of a bubble wand using a wire hanger as no decent sized bubble wand could be found), direct sunlight and a black backdrop. The key here is the right angle, otherwise all you see is nothingness. And the more you let it sit, the more colours form and move.


I'm pretty happy with how these turned out, though I know it would have been way better using a macro lens.

Nonetheless, the results were pretty interesting.



Thank you for reading!

I hope you enjoyed the behind the scenes looks at "Effervescence".
