RDZsT

When photographer Mark Meyer wakes up every morning in Alaska, the first thing he notices is the view through his room’s windows. Over time, he began to notice that this view took on a wide range of appearances across different times and seasons (mostly cold weather). He then started capturing a casual series of photographs that show the abstract, minimalist views that appear due to the rain, snow, and fog. The project is called An Alaska Window.

Over the past couple of years, German photographer Markus Reugels has attracted quite a bit of attention for his high-speed photographs of water drop splashes.

Portraits of Women Wearing Water Wigs

A couple of months ago we featured a creative project by photographer Tim Tadder called Water Wigs, which featured portraits of bald guys wearing splashes of water as wigs. The creative images quickly went viral online.

Now Tadder is back with a followup project called Water Wigs Women, which features the exact same idea applied to female models. What’s crazy is that some of the models were willing to shave their head for these images.

Turn Solid Glass Objects into Liquid by Splashing Some Water

Here’s a fun weekend photo project for you to try: turn solid glass objects into liquid by splashing water onto them. That’s what Mexico City-based photographer Jean BĂ©rard did for his series titled Liquid Glass. He set various glass vessels onto a table, and photographed them multiple times while splashing the water contained within and tossing water on from the outside.

The photographs were then merged into single composite photos that make the objects look like they’re created entirely out of water.

Photographer Has a Close Call at the America’s Cup World Series

Boat racing photographer Rob Thorn had a close call at America’s Cup World Series Newport last week. One of the racing catamarans (ORACLE TEAM USA Coutts) clipped the small boat Thorn was shooting on top of, knocking him off balance and nearly sending his Canon 7D, 5D Mark II, and set of lenses into the ocean. Luckily, he was able to regain his balance, and even managed to snap a photograph of the boats colliding.

Time-Lapse of a Water Drop Splash

Water drop photographer Corrie White creates pretty neat “time-lapse” videos of water drops falling and making splashes. The images aren’t from the same splash: White shoots one photo of 350-400 individual drop attempts, with each photo delayed just a fraction of a second longer than the previous one. Combining the resulting images into a time-lapse (or stop-motion) video creates the result seen here.
