Blew some bubbles onto an object. Took a photograph as they 'shattered' They reminded me of colourfull little planets. It took 1247 photos to get this image. The bubbles were blown onto a plastic ruler. Only one external light source was used. The two lights reflecting in the bubbles is actually only one, reflecting at the top and bottom. A home made lightbox was used with 4 white sides for the reflecting areas. This was a timed shot, not sound on light trigers used.
