Planet Bubbles

Planet Bubbles 01 ©Jason TozerPlanet Photography…such a potent mix that appeals to my passion of space, but!…these images are not some newly discovered planet by NASA’s Cassini space probe, instead their images created by London-based photographer Jason Tozer. He creates these amazing planet bubbles on a wet ring, which includes the construction of a Perspex dome for better lighting so he can capture the real complexity and beauty of a soap bubble’s surface. He then sometimes uses a straw to jiggle the surface of the bubble and make its colours swirl to create beautiful Jupiter-esque patterns. To create his ‘Bubble’ concoction, he mixes household detergent with glycerine to produce longer lasting bubbles.

Tozer says…
The first time I shot bubbles was when Sammi Vaughan at Creative Review asked me if I’d take some pictures on a Sony camera for an advertorial that was to appear the CR blog. As the Sony TV ads at the time were the ones that filled a cityscape with foam it was decided that a starting point of bubbles was relevant. I spent a happy day with an assistant making all sorts of pictures of bubbles & soapy films.

  1. Hands down bubbles are my favorite thing in this whole wide world. ( aside from my children maybe. and cappuccinos.) I could look at them and/or make them for hours. What a wonderful find. Now I want to dig out my bubble photos ! (which will obviously pale in comparison but I enjoy nonetheless because they hold memories!)Thank you Mr M. 😀

    1. Thanks Hope, I totally agree, I ‘m going to try my own bubble shots.
      I’ve seen shots by a photographer who takes his bubbles everywhere and includes them in all his shots..cool idea

      1. It’s not the profile pic right now, but it was, and it probably will be again. I’m thinking of using the “Green With Envy” Photo from the “Photo Challenge”.
