Bubble PhotographyRecently I’ve been having a surprising amount of fun playing with some bubble solution that Nora was given by a local shopkeeper. Besides the obvious, the bubbles are my favorite of Nora’s toys. It took her a while to break out of her awe at looking at them enough to intentionally pop them, and she still hasn’t understood the process of blowing through the hoop to create them. But that’s fine; I’m content blowing them for her.

I have more ideas about photography of bubbles than I have time to implement them, but last night I finally got around to my first attempt. For some reason my off-camera flash wireless connection wasn’t working, so I decided to turn off the room lights, set a long exposure, and manually fire the flash. Of about twenty shots, these are the best three.

Although it’s nearly impossible to tell, the hoop was lying down on the table on this one.

Sagging…

Here you can see the reflection of the camera sitting on my splayed gorillapod and the flash also sitting on the table.

There are many, many more interesting things to be done here. These were made in about five minutes on the spur of the moment.
