To create something beautiful through high-speed photography requires a lot of planning and patience. Photographer Jack Long’s series of photographs entitled Liquid Vessels and Blooms came about through his explorations with splash photography, which led him to create original ways to photograph liquids in motion. Or fluid suspensions, as he likes to call it. Through extensive experimentation, he was able to shape and color liquids in forms resembling flowers and was successful in creating each photo with just a single capture of the camera, without the use of photoshop to create composited images. What you see is how it was shot. Now that’s some major skill right there.
