Liquid Sculpture Art Photography by Jack Long
Jack Long, Liquid Art Photography. My goal is to create intriguing visual art using liquids as my subject. Because it is fluid, and happen so quickly, photography is the only method of seeing them. The photography portion is only the final stage in the creation of these images of fluids suspended in mid-air for a very brief period of time. The whole action takes just a fraction of a second. I work to create and capture the three dimensional fluid form at it’s most interesting shape and position. The form is captured with high speed flash photography that has a duration of as brief as 1/10,000th of a second. Even with complicated construction and extensive testing, the results are still often surprising and serendipitous.
While there is a lot of technical aspects to the work, my goal is to always strive to create visually intriguing photography. As an experienced photographer, the quality of light and form are extremely important in bringing out the characteristics and shapes of the fluids.
Unlike much splash based photography being made lately, the images I create are single capture events. I do not use photoshop composition or digital imaging to create my images. The techniques I use are self discovered and proprietary.
'I have created forms as large as one half of a metre in diameter to as small as 5cm. They all have similar forms that I can then transform depending upon the variables I apply.'
The 53-year-old uses a Canon 1Ds MkII camera with a Canon 28-70 f2.8 lens at 50mm.
Mr Long added: ‘The shutter speed was set at 125, but because I was using high-speed flash, I just needed to trigger the lights while suppressing ambient light.
'I have used an infrared flash trigger at times but these are triggered more by eye and feel than with an electronic system.'

oh my godddddd there is a new swedish reality tv show where they are tracking down internet trolls and confronting them about the death threats they’ve sent to people, since it’s actually illegal.
watching them try to explain how it’s not them is the best entertainment i’ve ever seen.
this episode ended with them fining him 5000 SEK to be paid to the victim!
guess what America should do
I took my girlfriend to an improv show the other night and during intermission we were passionately arguing over whether half a 5 Hour Energy shot would give you 2.5 hours of energy or 5 hours of half-assed energy so we turned around to ask the opinions of the three people behind us and one of them said “Are all your arguments like this because we heard you in the lobby earlier fighting over the right way to pronounce ‘egg’?”

This adorable baby squirrel was picked up from a sidewalk in Washington D.C. with a broken ankle, chipped tooth and bloody nose. Luckily, a concerned passer-by picked it up and took it to City Wildlife, where vets gave it a leg brace.

Here’s the color insert for volume 3; similar to last time, it’s a high-res scan so it can be used as a wallpaper or something like that. :)
