Making a splash: Markus Reugels captures spectacular water shots (II)
So yesterday I showed you Markus Reugels’ Liquid Sculptures. Today it’s all about the Liquid Splashes.
The main difference between the two is the setup – while the Sculptures use a balloon and a speaker, the Splashes look a lot more complex and involve a DIY siphon. You can see what I mean in the photo diagram Markus has been good enough to post on his Flickr.
Moving away from the technical aspects, the Splashes feel a lot lighter. The plain black backgrounds are generally swapped for pale colours, shapes are reflected in the water’s surface and there is a delicacy that comes with concentrating on one delicate jet of water instead of a forest of them.
A lot of people have commented on the mushroom-y nature of a lot of the work although I found myself thinking more of umbrellas. I’d be interested to know what you make of them.
