Scavenger Hunt #35 – White

Bubbly white structure; the larger bubbles show more structure of lower bubbles.

The 35th Scavenger Hunt had a very colorful theme, because there’s all colors of the rainbow in it, and then some. It took me a while to manage to find a way to get a set of pictures that would look like a proper set. My first idea was to try to do something around food photography; some of the colors dissuaded me. I finally landed on the idea of doing something I had wanted to do for a long time: playing with water and oil and soap to make BUBBLES. Not all the pictures have all these components, but I tried to keep a uniting “bubbles/droplets” theme while trying to provide some variation on the technique to get cohesive, but different images.

For White, I went for bubbles, but not the oil-in-water kind. I recently bought a new coffee machine that also has a milk system; for this picture, I used that to get a white foam! I lit it from below, and my camera thought it was far more yellow than it actually was, but I still liked the bubble structure very much, so that’s what I ended up editing and submitting.
