Pedestrian items like soap take on a whole different appearance under the eyes of a brilliant photographer. Colossal has a look at Jason Tozer’s work.
No these aren’t incredible new high-resolution photographs of newly discovered rainbow worlds beamed back from Hubble, they’re just soap
bubbles, captured by the extremely talented photographer Jason Tozer in his London studio. Armed with a Hasselblad camera and a 135mm lens, Tozer has developed a his lighting technique that requires a giant dome of perspex to illuminate the reflective surface of each bubble. The more patterned surfaces on the bubbles are manipulated with a straw to create the various swirls and textures that might as well be the surface of Jupiter or Neptune. All of the colors and details you’re seeing are 100% genuine as Tozer very rarely relies on any sort of retouching or color correction. You can explore his website to see a few more photos, several of which have a fancy zoom feature giving you the full macro effect, he’s also done similar work with smoke and ice. All images
