Convection of steam can be seen against a black background, with the base of the kettle lit with a blue LED strip to more clearly show air flow.
The blue LED looks awesome!
I’m intrigued by the way the light interacts with the condensation. The colors are also really nice.
I enjoy the angle and aesthetic of the picture, flow could possibly emphasized more.
Art: The bright and dim shades of blue really stand out.
Flow: The steam is faint, but still enough to tell what is happening. I am curious if light directly onto the steam would make it stand out more, or if it would still focus on the kettle.
Technique: I really enjoy the shades of blue, so whatever was done to get this effect was nice.
– The art here is interesting as the highlight is around the rim of the glass, there’s a lot going on that’s hard to identify
– It’s hard for me to find the flow in the picture although the color scheme really grabs my eye.
– The photographic technique is a paradigm of sorts, appears that a tripod was used to find an ISO view
Art: Visually striking, strong color blocking. Maybe experiment with less contrast and different angles to capture the steam in different ways.
Flow: I can’t see it incredibly well, but I think with some slight tweaks it could be incredible.
Technique: Interesting capture, but maybe try some other lighting configurations to experiment?
Art : I liked the blue LED on the object
Flow : The behavior of steam is visible
Tech : Nice color contrast of image
Awesome concept with really neat lighting. The fluid is a bit overshadowed by the bright kettle. If you could highlight the steam more it would make the aesthetic perfect.
I like the consistency of the color and color levels. The understandable and reproducible flow and the focus. However, have you thought about increasing the steam?
This image is very crisp and the contrast is very nice. The use of shadows, and the asymmetry is a nice effect. It is a bit difficult to see the steam, so maybe a different angle could put the fluid flow in a more attention capturing part of the image. I really like the geometry and the blue/black colors.
I enjoy the electric blue aesthetic (Hi-Tec) – I couldn’t really tell where the fluid is; my eyes are drawn to the bright coffee mug. – condensation?
Great job on the lighting and very good focus of the condensation on the kettle. There might be a way to capture more of the steam in a future experiment.
The focus of the picture was good. I also liked the blue and dark colors that made the picture aesthetically pleasing. Maybe more clear picture of what is going on would be better.
I like how distinct the colors are in the photo. The flow is subtle but noticeable, the steam looks very organic in contrast to the sort of surreal look of the neon blue pot. I think how close you shot the photograph also makes it look more interesting
Color choice is pleasing to look at. The steam is a little difficult to pick out in the image but overall great quality. The contrast range is good.
If you were to highlight the flow phenomena a little more that would be helpful! But the blue stands out a lot amongst the black! Super cool
Really nice image, I like the contrast between the blue color on the left and shadow on the right. Also I like the reflection on the kettle. The stream isn’t super clear but it is hard to capture the stream flow.
Excellent focus and color composition, could improve framing. The physics are interesting but difficult to back out because the eye is drawn away from the steam.
I like the aesthetic of the image! The flow could be better controlled or framed. I like how you were able to capture the shadow of the steam. Photographic technique could improve with framing/angles.
The electric blue in the image is very aesthetically pleasing. Also, the condensation in the image has great contrast. Did you consider removing the lid from the pot completely to see more of the steam?
The detail of the fog is seen well, the focus of the image could be drawn to the edges of the kettle a little more!
The steam in this composition is subtle, yet present. The depth of field in the image is effective. The steam seems to smear the blue color outside of the kettle, providing a contrast against the sharp edges of the kettle which is rather pleasing. The composition clearly illustrates the concept of condensation while highlighting the concept of evaporation as well.
Very cool choice of colors to illuminate the glass acting as an interestingly shaped “lens”. I think it may help to crop the image or change the photo to center around the flow, since it is more centered to the lid at the moment. This would help expose the flow a little better.
I like the positioning of the kettle in the image, it really draws the eye. I really like the contrast and use of blue LEDs. This is a really cool image.
It is a little hard to tell what the focus should be on. The kettle is so lit up that it is almost a little distracting. In the future, maybe focus on the inside of the kettle instead of the steam.
The electric blue aesthetic with the dark background is very visually appealing. The shadows in this picture really make the blue pop in this picture. The flow of steam in the picture is not the main focus in this photo. Did you mean to have the electric blue or the steam to be the main focus in your picture?
The contrast between the blue and black looks good. The focus and shutter speed are also well balanced. The flow itself is a little hard to make out, and the kettle takes a lot of the attention in the image.
Very nice background! I liked the idea of using LED lights!
The flow is not really obvious, try to boil more water or try using a different kettle.
Focus is mostly on the kettle, not the fluid.
Art: I like the blue glow around the entire picture.
Flow vis: I like the contrast and what appears to be condensation on the pot, as it contrasts well with the steam.
Picture: I feeel cropping off the empty black part of the image would be extremely useful in the photo pictured and bring the image closer to being the center of attention. Currently, the lid is centered which I feel detracts from the image.
I like the electric blue color that this picture uses. The fluid flow at first is somewhat hard to see at first but it does do a good job of showing the convection of the water vapor from a boiling kettle. I think that the contrast is cool given then low light and the contrast between the blue lighting.
Very beautiful picture. The flow is understandable, and flow is controlled. Focus and time is good.
Art:the image is interesting and beautiful. Really like the shadow
Flow: the detail is visible and creative.
Photographic technique: love the full contrast range.
The composition and focus here are very nice, the electric blue color stands out. The flow is difficult to see when stood next to the bright, powerful image of the kettle however.
Art: I really like the violet/blue hues and saturation amounts showing in the photo
Flow: the details are not clear as to where the fluid flow is occurring
Technique: Shadows are detailed and depth of field is perfect
The framing and colors in this picture are really nice. I think the flow phenomenon could be highlighted better maybe by focusing on that a bit more…possibly by adding light onto the steam? The texture on the coffee cup is really nice as well.
The photo has great color contrast and it looks very dramatic. The steam from convection is there, but it is very hard to see. Was this focus intentional or did you want to highlight the pot as well? The photo does have a good sense of depth.
The steam is a bit difficult to see. Possibly using a flash or having less distracting objects in the foreground would improve the image.
Adding the LEDs to the image makes whats going on much easier to see, which is good. It is a little hard to see the actual steam coming out of the kettle though. Could you zoom in or focus on the steam more than the kettle?
The colors have a bold impact on the intent of the image. It looks as if the light from captured from the LEDs are the focus of the image as the steam isn’t too visible.
The steam coming off of the kettle is visualized very well. The image is very crisp but the steam is hard to see. The contrast of the image has been edited excellently.
Fluid flow is somewhat difficult to make out. Artistically it’s great, very cool colors and asthestics. I like that you used a narrow depth of field so part of the image is out of focus.
-The colors are pleasing and I love the ascetics of this photo.
-At first I didn’t see the fog, but this clearly illustrates the phenomena.
-This photo has great focus.
Very good lighting and set up technique! Also, spot on quality when it comes to focus. Maybe crop it down so that the main sight is the actual steam.
Art: Edge lighting is very cool! Nice monochromatic color scheme
Flow: Very soft, hard to make out but smooth looking
Photo Technique: Nice use of composition/rule of thirds
I’m struggling to see where the flow is – this could just as easily be an empty coffee pot with a lot of light reflecting off of it. Also, cropping the right side, and maybe even a bit off the top.
The blue LED gives it a very pleasing effect. I think it would be helpful to have less of the kettle in the image as it draws the focus away from the flow.
The LED thing was a cool idea. I like the misty mist at the top :)
Does the image focus on the fluid flow? It looks like it’s laminar—I wonder what it would look like if it were turbulent.
Our eyes are drawn towards the kettle. Is that the desired affect?
The setup of the lights is beautiful. It looks electrifying. If I didn’t read the description, it would be a bit tough to pick out what flow this is. Cropping out the right side might help.
I like this image a lot, I feel like compositionally it’s absolutely great. The colors are very nice. The photo seems very well taken. My only note is that I think the fluid could have been shown a bit more clearly.
Art: the boosted contrast provides for an interesting feel in this image
Flow: the flow is evident, but is not entirely clear in the image. It can be seen above the kettle, but to the untrained eye, it can be hard to see
Technique: focus or shadows could be balanced better, or adjusting cropping.
I love the idea of imaging steam, however, I had a slight problem noticing what I was seeing. Maybe if the whole kettle was in the frame it would be more distinct to know that this is a kettle.
For me, I had a harder time trying to find your flow in this picture or what the picture was before you explained it in class. The colors are amazing in this image, but why are the colors appearing in that pattern specifically?
