September, Team 2 – IV 2 // Alessandro Villain


Above is a photograph of turbulent flow occurring in ambient air. The photo was taken in an enclosed space with a propylene glycol smoke machine and planar laser. The collaborators were Ella McQuaid, Max Patwarden, and Marina Mccann.

The photo was taken with a Canon 250D, with a 50mm lens, with an ISO of 6400, f/1.4, and a shutter speed of 1/2000.

    Great job with the color in the edit. I think pulling out some of the saturation in favor of greater contrast really worked to your benefit here.

    I really love the color you chose! I also think that the interweaving patterns and brightness gradient provide a lot of interesting focal points, so you don’t notice the slight focus issue you were worried about.

    I think you ended up in a really nice place with the colors and highlights that gives more definition to the different flows happening.

    I’m a fan of the purple and how the smoke almost looks like grease sitting on top of water. The overlapping vortices are cool as well.

    I love the color and the vivid changes in direction, curls, swirls, and flow. I love the use of the planar laser. I would have thought that this was a surface of a liquid.
    To answer your question, I think this image is complex enough to not notice any grainy effects present.

    I like the way your subject has a brightness gradient. It’s nice to watch the subject fade to the background
