The Stunning Beauty of High Speed Water Drop Photography

There are whole worlds out there that humans cannot foresee with the naked eye. But with potent microscopes we are capable to observe life at the microscopic and even atomic level; and with high-speed cameras we are proficient to observe proceedings that happen in fractions of a second. The genius photographer Markus Reugels focuses on the latter primarily testing with water drops. Through dizzying combinations of lighting, food coloring, surfaces liquid and solid and airstreams; Markus Reugels produces unbelievable liquid art that occurs and disappears in a split-second, but it is immortalized via his photography. Markus Reguels focuses on the fact that the pictures are not Photo-shopped and that he only uses post-production software to eliminate things like sensor dust. All colors and tones are naturally processed and the shapes and patterns are not digitally manipulated. At the end of the gallery I have included some slow-motion video to display how some of the shots are achieved along with an informative video interview with Reugels that delves deeper into his process and set up. For further details; you need to check out more of Markus’ incredible work at the links below.
