Fog machine inside a laser diffraction device. I used iPhoto to post-process this image. I turned up the contrast to eliminate and residual fog that may have been captured in this image and caught by the laser. Additionally, I touched up the image to further eliminate residual fog captured in the original image and also tried to enhance the conical shape of the image. Finally, I cropped the image down to focus on some of the cooler flow phenomena that I saw.

    I like how this photo has more black space than green light illuminating the smoke. I think it makes it more simple and brings your attention to the flow more.

  • I really like the colors in this image. The flow is really nice too. It is a little grainy?

  • This came out really cool! I would of loved to see it a little more focused! Its a little grainy

  • I really like how each member of your team was able to get a different aesthetic out of the same setup. This one is awesome, I love how the majority of the image is black. Nice job

  • Cool laser color working with the fog. The focus is great.

  • The color in the image really highlights the flow, I think the low light conditions are a little difficult to capture but the image turned out great.

  • Looks similar to a lava lamp. Although it appears 2D, the details on the edges indicate the 3D effect.

  • Nice job! I like the vortexes you captured. It looks like you captured some nice vortex stretching dynamics. Everything looks time-and-space resolved.

    This is a very cool image. I like how the hard edges that the laser balance with the soft swirls of the fog.

  • Nice, clean image with a dark background. Good focus and exposure and good time resolution, and I like the clean edges to the cone shape.

  • Very mesmerizing photo, I like how the smoke vortices formed and the colors used.

  • You caught the flow of the fog well. Nice low-light image and the contrast is perfect.

  • I really like this image. The spiraling fog looks excellent with the laser lighting it up. The focus and color are also great. Very nice image!

  • This is a really interesting picture and awesome that you were able to get those swirls in the fog. The green color is a good choice and really catches your eyes.

  • Beautiful image. I like the view of the turbulent flow spirals. The green laser provides a nice aesthetic.

    The flow spirals are beautiful. The focus really brings out individual particles of the fog.

  • Great image, but the graininess is slightly odd. Howeve,r I kind of like the graininess of the image, it adds to the overall effect.

  • This is a cool representation of turbulent flow. The bright green really stands out on the black background.

  • Very interesting flow. The green highlight and the hard lines on either side really help draw attention to the many vortexes. The focus is good, but the image seems a little grainy.

  • Really cool image, the focus and exposure are spot on, I really like the kind of granular effect in the fog spirals actually.

  • Impressive image, the flow is super clear and sharp, and the flow is beautiful as well. The image is a little noisy may due to the high ISO.

  • Cool coloring. I like the choice of image.

    Nice focus and composition. It might be interesting to see the full extent of the flow.

    Reply
  • Great focus and detail in the image. The turbulent vortices within the fog are really cool and I like the length of the column you captured.

    Reply
  • The resolution of the particles in this image is great! I can see so much detail. The focus of this image is excellent as well and the swirling effects of the fog are beautiful.

    Reply
  • Great image, I like how the background is all black. Really cool swirl patterns and fog. The only thing I might change is more color.

    Beautiful image, I love the bright green against the dark background. Maybe lower ISO to help with the slight graininess?

    Reply
  • The turbulent plumes make very crisp spirals. I’m drawn to that particular spiral at the center bottom that looks like a y or a g. If you take a picture with lower ISO or if you could get a hold of a more sensitive camera, it would look less grainy.

  • Ryan Neff, thank you for this post. Its very inspiring.

    Very nice aesthetic and great demonstration of color. The image seems granular which detracts from it a bit.
