Oil Bubbles in Water – Team First by Tandralee

The movement of oil bubbles in water was captured using a high speed camera with a macro lens. Videography by Tandralee Chetia, Rachel Marbaker and Riley Menke. Music: Rising Star from Microsoft Clipchamp

As oil is hydrophobic, it tries to minimise its contact area with water by forming spheres (bubbles). However, the lipophilic interactions between the oil bubbles force them to coalesce into a single layer at the top of the water.

    What a fun video! The colors you chose work really well together and the dynamics of the oil is satisfying to watch.

    I love how this video looks. The way the bubbles return to the surface is very satisfying and well-focused. The chosen colors highlight the oil and make the video a very cool-looking piece of art.

    Hello Tandralee,
    I really like your use of contrasting colors in this video. I also think the use of pastels is very beautiful. The detail you were able to capture is really outstanding.

    Hi Tandralee!

    The movement you were able to capture is fascinating! I really like how you captured the shadows on each droplet. What did you use as the background for this image?

      Hey Maddie, we used a large white posterboard as the background. The yellow incandescent lights tend to give the backdrop a pinkinsh hue.
