Photographer Jack Long has created these beautiful splash photographs of flowers called ‘Vessels and Blooms’ which at first glance you’d be excused for thinking are portraits of strange exotic flora. However, if you look closely you’ll see that they’re actually a carefully crafted series of coloured splashes shot at an incredibly fast speed.
The photographs took months of preparation; testing different techniques, pigments, dyes, thickeners as well as old fashioned trial and error. Once Long decided on the right mixes and concoctions he blasted the liquid through a customized mechanism before snapping the splash in a perfectly timed capture. Judging by the results you’d have to say his patience paid off. And don’t forget the flower pots are splashes too
As he said himself:
This series was a culmination of months of planning and testing. Hundreds of captures are made in testing and then many more during the actual final capture stage. A very few stand out as being the best.
