Coldplay says every teardrop is a waterfall, but photographer Markus Reugels thinks every droplet is a liquid refraction! With an elaborate set-up and a lot of patience, he captures spherical representations of photos on globules of water. Get similar effects with the new Fisheye Baby 110 camera!
With a high-speed camera, serious lighting, and a lot of patience, German photographer Markus Reugels shoots spheres of water as they drop, refracting the background image they are set upon. The results are amazing!
“They may look simple, but there is a lot of work and experience behind the images,” Reugels said, perfecting the technique with lots of experimentation. (The first photo in the gallery above is one of his first attempts.) Using satellite photographs of our Solar System as a backdrop, he captures the planets spherically, keeping in mind that timing is another key to getting the right images.
Besides heavenly bodies, Reugels has also shot drops of Superman, Batman, and Spiderman, as well as more abstract pictures. Wanna know how to achieve the same look without all the expensive equipment?
