In honor of Inktober, Isaac Alvarez of UNPLUG Production made his own ink-related project. But rather than making an ink drawing, he focused on commercial watch photography. He used only a simple two-light setup and some super-cheap items, most of which we all have lying around the house. Despite the low-budget setup, the results are professional-looking, so let’s dive in and see how he did it.
Ink in water is definitely a photogenic and interesting subject. Photographer Brian Tomlinson is also attracted to it, and he creates this kind of artwork by mixing various liquids and techniques. As a result, he ends up with photos that sometimes look like soothing, and other times like creatures from your craziest dreams. His images have a great sense of depth, and he achieves it with minimal gear – a camera and a single speedlight.
Ink floating in water is one of the most hypnotizing things to watch. It’s a favorite subject of many photographers and videographers, and guys from Macro Room have raised it to a new level. They have created a video using a fish tank with water, some ink and a couple of objects. And they did such a great job, it will be hard to believe there aren’t any computer generated effects. There’s no CGI, only the mesmerizing dance of ink with different elements in water. Three minutes seem like a fair time for a video, but when it ends, you’ll wish it lasted longer.
WOOOO what an amazing game, it really came down to the wire with only 3 secs left. Hell yeah, Packers play Atlanta next week. You know I never really used to be all that much of a football fan, but the past 10 years or so I’ve come around. And, being in Milwaukee, it’s Packers all the way.
Ever have those nights on Youtube clicking on one video and before you know it you’re researching the difference between a Nimitz class aircraft carrier and a Kitty Hawk? No? Well, consider yourself lucky. That was last night for me and I came across flowmotion vids, a Sony Xperia ad featuring it, and not many vids on how to do it. ( I really did look up aircraft carriers, Im Army so I had no clue really about the difference) We’ve all seen the 4K reels of this kind of photography so lets look at how I did it.
Italian graphic designer and photographer Alberto Seveso was fascinated by the art on album covers of heavy metal albums and skateboard plates. and decided to create similar art by pouring ink into water.
By using specific ink consistency and a dedicated pouring process Alberto creates these images. While often the end result is careful planned, a lot of the process was discovered by a chain of creative mistakes. It is pretty cool to see how Alberto celebrates those mistakes.
