These are regular blown bubbles in a pool of water on a mirror with a black backdrop. Shot with my Nikon D80 and two flashes, one with a red filter.

    very inventive – love the colours nd HOW did you get them not to pop!! No don’t tell I know the rules ;)) really super!

  • I only had about ten seconds to shoot before the bubbles pop. It took MANY attempts and a lot of time needless to say. Especially since I needed to clean out the water after every pop.
