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.'

Wait a minute…

I have been laughing at this for hours now…

So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.  
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven. 
Good job Internet.
