Ever felt like having a warm cup of coffee after seeing the coffee cup in an advertisement? Ever felt the rain falling like droplets on your head after seeing the picture of an ad for a movie? Ever felt the 3D effects in a photo clicked just randomly? Welcome to the world of liquid art photography. An art that captures those motions which give way to fantastic and beautiful imaginations!
This photographic art is used in various forms to promote the different types of products and line-ups. A glass of water when seen in such form would make you wish for a glass for yourself. Such is the temptation this form of art creates. This type of photography basically involves two things: Liquids and a high speed digital camera. If you have both of this and the skilful hand to click an amazing picture; then you are in for the liquid art photography format.
What this format displays is an inherent energy of flowing water or liquid and captures it well to portray a live form of flowing water. When viewed in this form, the water actually seems to be flowing. Similarly, the cup of coffee feels real and warm to the eyes. Such is the dynamics of this art. But not everyone can play this magical piece well. You don’t just need a camera to capture these scenes but a very skilful hand that can handle the high speed equipment in a stride.
You don’t really go about clicking real things but what you do is create a mirage of the real things and make them seem real to the outside world. Interesting but unbelievable, isn’t it? Well, photographers create an effect using liquids that is very similar to the real stuff. In some cases of course they have no other choice but to shoot the real thing. But where they cannot shoot the real thing, they create the mirage of the real thing and shoot it to perfection. Hence, when we see things like minerals, dust, dirt etc., we don’t feel that it is fake. We actually believe that it is true. The mirage is so perfect that even if we wish to we cannot believe otherwise.
The advertisements with splash of waters or the ones carrying the paints etc. are all liquid art photography. Several photographers have actually manipulated the water and drawn several inspirations from it. Some of these inspirations are probably the best of the lot. Some images so created have given way to amazing creations and have undoubtedly won the hearts of many.
Even if you wish to you cannot erase the effects of this art from the books of marketing and advertising. This is an amazing pictorial representation given from the land of photographers. A visual experience that melts the hearts of a lot of people! There are a lot of variations and innovations that this art has experienced. In this article I have included 30 amazing examples of liquid art photography to inspire you.
