Paint splash photos are really fun to take, and they can certainly look amazing. If you would like to experiment with this technique, Steve Kazemir shares a very cool technique in his latest video. He takes fantastic, colorful paint splash photos with the help of a speaker, a garbage bag and some noise. Check out his video below if you want to learn how to take them, too!
My Students came up with an idea to drop flowers into a pan of milk after they saw several pictures on Instagram. The students decided to create a technique for getting the perfect picture by eliminating all trial and error. The students created the following technique and were able to photograph over 70 photos, successfully capturing the splash every time.
Photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz has shared his splendid work with us before. His signature technique is high-speed photography of models “dressed” in milk splashes. After Milky Pin-Ups, Splash Heroes and Fallen Angels, Jaroslav has created another stunning series for 2018 calendar and he shared the work with DIYP. This time, he blends pin-up style with the inspiration from popular movies.
In his latest series, you can see Morticia Addams, Jessica Rabbit, Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction, to name just a few. All of the models bring together pin-up style, movie references, and of course – lots of colorful milk splashes.
Liquids are a great source of photographic fun. It’s a topic which fascinates many photographers. There’s so much to experiment and play with. Splashes are particularly intriguing to me a a photographer, because you never really know exactly what you’re going to get. You might fire of 50 or 100 shots before you get the one you want.
That’s where this video from photographer Dustin Dolby steps in to save you a little frustration. With minimal kit, and a little compositing, you can often create fantastic end results much more quickly.
Photographing splashing liquids is great fun. There’s all kinds of things you can do with it. Moving the lighting around, using coloured gels, or swapping over to a completely different liquid altogether. Often, though, the simplest place to start is with one of the most abundant substances on the planet, and that’s water.
That’s the liquid which Russia based commercial photographer Andrew Mikhaylov uses in this video. Andrew goes through the whole process of shooting and post processing water splashes. I will warn you, you might want to have a bunch of towels handy if you’re going to try this yourself. As you would expect, things get a little wet and messy.
Valentine was yesterday and we thought we will give you some post-holiday roses. Of course those are “photography roses” made with high speed photography by Alex Koloskov and his team at Photigy.
We were wondering how those images came to be and had a chat with Alex.
Alex tells DIYP that there are two main secrets to getting the splashes right: 1) very short flash duration (They were using top notch Broncolors strobes) and 2) shaping the splashes by hand.
I’m sure most of you are familiar with Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz’s work by now. His signature splashed-milk photography has been featured twice before on the blog as well as on numerous media outlets across the world.
Coming from a personal place with this one, and with plenty of experience, Jaroslav seems to have outdone himself as these incredible photos show.
We were also lucky enough to get awesome behind-the-scenes shots, giving us a glimpse into how these photos were created.
It’s been over two weeks since I bought a new pair shoes and I still haven’t worn them because I wanted to take one last picture of them. Last week I did a lighting tutorial on how to photograph shoes, on this tutorial we will add some splashes to the shoes and do a step by step tutorial on how do one yourself.
