Martin Waugh creates all these stunning photographs of water drops(Liquid Sculpture). Those pics are absolutely stunning with great color.
Liquid Sculpture is the process of creating shapes by dropping and splashing water, or other liquids. These sculptures are then photographed, since they last only a few thousandths of a second. Creating and capturing these engaging forms requires careful manipulation of the materials and precise control of the lighting and timing. I mostly use plain, clear water, sometimes with a little soap in it (gallery). I have experimented with food coloring, as well (gallery), and glycerin to increase the viscosity (gallery). Milk is a classic material and still enjoyable (gallery), and oil is very tempting (gallery).
Several people ask if these images are Photoshop trickery. No. I might clean up the background (my cat likes to leave little hairs in the water), and sharpen the image. Sometimes I increase the saturation of the colors a bit. Otherwise, the colors and shapes are from nature, I just recorded them.
