Psychedelic Bubble Soap Photography

Post by fisheyeadventures »

Hey everyone
Quick and simple macro photography tutorial you can try yourself at home. I took psychedelic images with water and soap. Using water, dish soap, a tripod, a bright light, a glass and a macro lens you can take colorful images by yourself. I am working on a second part focussing on quite similar images taken with a flash getting even greater and sharper results.
Have you ever tried to captures those images? Which settings and setup did you try?

Very hypnotic, takes me back to my misspent youth for some reason :D
If you have a lens with a large enough image circle and have a means of tilting the camera body that would bring the entire plane of the soap film into focus.

Soap bubbles

I played around with soap bubble photography a few years ago. I made 4x5 inch sheet bubbles.
