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.'

❝ A Rude Awakening

I Have Realized Something,

Just out of the blue,
But once the thought came into my head
It was a loud screaming red. 

I have stopped counting… 

I have stopped counting the number of guys I have proclaimed their love,
     then I’ve rejected.
I have stopped counting how many men I have seen,
     and liked, and kissed.
I have almost stopped counting the many jerks that have taken advantage of my…
