Image of the Month – November 2012

The Image of the Month for this month is the high-speed work I carried out imaging water drop collisions under soap bubbles – with a difference.  In this image you can see I also caught the soap bubble bursting!  To prove it wasn’t a fluke (which to be honest, the first time I did it, I thought it was) I have captured the bubble bursting, along with the drop collision three times, under different lighting conditions.  I used the famous Mumford Time Machine to handle all the timings (water drop release, camera firing, flash firing) and used the Canon 5D MkII with a 100mm macro lens to record the action.  Flashes are the Ultra units from highspeedflash dot com and I used three of them, together with colour filters in this work.  I will return to shooting things and recording the high-speed results later in the month.
