    Hi all. Tried my hand at bubble photography yesterday. I know, still needs some work. But I think I am pretty satisfied for this being my first time shooting this. Tell me what you think :wink:

    #2 is really dreamy. The others, not so much. I dont think the dead space adds anything to them. They look nice and sharp though.

    Are you using a round glass? Im thinking something with a flat face (like aquarium) would give you really even, deep dof.

    Good start. Love to see more! :thumbup: Ive been wanting to try my hand at soap bubbles/refraction but just havent had the time to delve into it.

    I was using a huge mug-type glass with a black shirt taped to the back. The flash was suspended on a (shoe)string from the ceiling fan with a Lumiquest LQ107 softbox on it pointing directly into the opening of the glass. I looked and looked and looked to try to find something flat, but all my aquariums have fish in them or are cracked. :)

    A re-shoot is coming up. I will post more then. Thanks again!
