Collin Clack May 26, 2019

Thanks for your comments. I filled a glass with water and added blue dishwashing liquid and gave it a good stir to get some bubbles going. I added +7 close up filters to my lens so I could get close. Placed the glass on my lightbox for backlighting and used a setting of EV -1 to bump up the saturation and contrast a bit. I have posted the same shot vertically composed as well and think that composition is even stronger. #104681

Hi Collin, Thanks for sharing your secrets! I do like the vertical composition better. Very cool shot!!! #105302
