Planetary Patterns on the Surfaces of Soap Bubbles
Visual communication magazine Creative Review commissioned photographer Jason Tozer to shoot a series of soap bubbles to test out the capabilities of a Sony D-SLR. All of the stunning results below were created ‘in-camera’, meaning filters and effects were not applied in post-production.
To achieve the planetary like images, Tozer began by blowing through a straw into a plate of soap solution, turning the camera on what formed on the near-side of the dish. He then used a lens cap wet with solution to achieve a single bubble shape to photograph. Tozer found that as more bubbles were made from the solution, the less colour that appeared on the surface.
Tozer’s bubble recipe was 10 parts water, 1 part liquid soap and a little bit of glycerine.
