Get Wet 2018 – Brent Bauer

This is four different types of food coloring mixed with gelatin until in a malleable state. Then swirled with a toothpick and captured with a full zoom.

    There is a little bit of color in this image, and they really pop. The rest is shades of gray or black, in the middle. I like the reflective surfaces in the center there, with the light box.
    The color swirls are really colorful, then they get trapped in a vortex of black! The lighting makes it look glossy.

    I love the colors in the image. I would maybe try shooting the image from a more birds eye view, however, the angle that the image was taken allows a different effect.

    Art: Very beautiful colors
    flow: I like the ooblec gel, but would like more focus on motion
    technique: Feels a bit underexposed, but pretty!

    I think it would be valuable if the exposure was high enough to see all of the colors. I’m wondering what a timed drop experiment would reveal for this type of fluid.

    Sweet colors and bloody goop. Central lighting could be stronger to make things pop more. Nice framing with the vignette.

    The framing of this photo reallys makes the subject shine. I love the brighter colors on the outside. Did you try brightening the middle.

    I like the vignetting around the edge of the frame, that and the subtle depth of field evoke old photography.

    The coloring in the center is a little dark, but the focus is drawn there. I think it is cropped well, and the material choice was interesting.

    This is pretty creative and beautiful. I must say it looked beautiful even when it was upside down, maybe think about using that technique in the future. Great choice with the gray background.

    Really interesting depiction of flow visualization. The mixing of the colors makes the image visually pleasing. The light background was a good choice to make the gel the main focus of the photo. You could’ve cropped the image more to get rid of the unnecessary background.

    The more I look at this image the more I like it, I think the composition is very strong and the background works very well.

    The physics of the flow are clearly identifiable! I do question your lighting as the colors seem a bit muted. was this intentional?

    I like this image. The colors and the background are well done, but the image might need more contrast in the dyes.

    Very nice reflections and post processing effects that kind of blurring out the background to help pop the image out.

    With the darkness in the center, it’s hard to tell what is going on. I like the streaks in the front and how they are brighter that the rest of the colors.

    Beautiful image, I like the color combination you have, really nice. The way you combine the colors it like a piece of art. Good focus and editing skills. Great job Brent.

    Great job creating your own gel. The blur on the sides helps draw attention to the fluid as well as the general focus of the image.

    Really nice idea, and the colors in it look amazing. I think the focusing may be improved but overall it is good.

    I like how the angle shows the bubble in the liquid. I think the color of the main bubble is a little dark, but the colors right in front of it look really cool.

    I really like the colors, I just wish I could see them more clearly. Maybe a higher angle photo and a little less white background would help focus on the subject area, which looks really cool.

    Nice colors and I like the vignette around the edge. The photo is a bit dark and you are losing some information right in the center where the colors are. How did you light the image? Maybe consider adding some overhead lights to help enhance the brightness.

    Great colors in this photo, I really like how a gel was formed from your process, and it almost appears as if the gel forms from all the colors converging in the piece.

    The colors look cool although I would make it a little brighter so that the colors pop a little more but the framing and focus are good.

    Cool use of color. I like the vignetting on the background. Not much fluid flow but great artistic merit.

    Focus seems pretty on point. Wish that the depth of field would have been greater to see the entire fluid. Exposure could have probably been a bit greater to bring out the highlights and add some light to the shadows.

    Great colors and contrast. The image would be improved if the exposure/brightness was increased a bit. Overall, the focus is spot-on and captivating.

  • Love the image. It’s a little dark but overall great post. I thing a top down angle could add for great effect

    I like how all the colors flow and combine together to create your image. It shows the flow really well and easy to visualize. The way you focus is really interesting too, I like it.

  • I really like how the depth of field makes a vignette around the subject, it is really pleasing to look at. Is there some movement in these dyes and paints? The image is high quality and I like the angle of that you took the image.

    I like the colors used. I also like how the focus is on the center and the rest gets blurred out. The white background is nice.
    In the future I would like to see the brighter colors a bit more.

    Very cool colors and the framing puts the dyed gelatin in the foreground of the photo. It would be nice if all of the dyed material were in focus.

    The upside down orientation of your image was very confusing from the image seen in class, but I love the color scheme!

    Art:
    I like the shiny parts. It looks wet.
    Flow:
    What flow phenomena are you trying to capture here? I’m not sure what physics are reviled.. I like your creative technique :)
    Photographic Technique:
    The lighting is very nice. What did you want to focus on? It looks a little blury…
