Our recent post on photographer Jason Tozerâ€™s images of bubbles prompted a fair few calls of â€œhow did he do that?â€ Well, we were in his studio on the day of the shoot and can reveal all hereâ€¦
The shoot came about after Sony approached Creative Review looking for a way in which to demonÂstrate the capabilities of its new Alpha 350 D-SLR camera. Having seen his wonderful images in last monthâ€™s Monograph, we suggested commissÂioning photographer Jason Tozer to create a suite of images around the theme of bubbles, thus tying in with the overall campaign idea for the camera.
As Tozer mentioned in a reply to the comments on the initial post, despite the prevalence for filters and post effects in photography these days, his bubbles series was created completely in-camera.
While some of the final shots resembled vast gas planets, others â€“ like the more amorphous blob shown above â€“ seemed even further removed from the humble equipment Tozer used to bring his subjects into being: namely, washing up liquid and a coat hanger bent into a hoop.
