    Very cool and nice set but #1 is the best of the bunch. I may have to try that myself on a Mr. Bubble night. :drunken_smilie:

    Don’t you live in FL? It needs to be at least 18 degrees f or below for the bubbles to freeze. Although, I did see some really great photos of soap bubbles (not frozen) in my macro photo group recently. The colors are amazing.

    Interesting and beautiful! #1 is also my favorite. Please list all the things you did wrong; I want to make it my “to do” list.

    Must be a location difference the only other frozen soap bubble effect was whilst watching Michael Pailing’s pole to pole.
    Here our temps are not low enough, I don’t use face gram or insta book so will have not seen the pics.
    I too like trying out ideas and know how hard some can be. Looking at your images and comments on the problems
    I say again don’t be to hard on your self.
    I do UV photography using cheap torches, not a studio set up, I spray objects with uv reactive paint.
    I had to learn from doing what did and did not work. Even making my own colour checker card to photo under uv so I would know how the colours would react . Learning to adjust water paint mixes to get different sized beads of paint to form.

    Great set! The ones you got last year were very good and inspirational. I tried it last year and gave up. You must have the magic frozen bubble touch.

    I did list what I did wrong!

    My biggest issue is that I learn what I need to do differently and then have to wait, sometimes almost a full year, for conditions to be right to try again.

    Thank you.

    Lol keep trying. It sometimes takes me 30 attempts that burst before freezing in order to get one bubble that lasts long enough.
