London, July 13 (ANI): An awe-inspiring photograph of the exact moment when a bubble is burst has been captured with a slow-motion camera.
The picture clicked by Richard Heeks, of Exeter, shows a soap bubble bursting into the distinctive pattern of streaks, while its other half remains perfectly formed.
“There’s something so satisfying about picturing something in your head and then finally seeing it on the camera,” the Telegraph quoted him as saying.
“It would be great to record the sound of a bubble popping, slow it down and play it over slow-motion footage of a bubble bursting.
“The ripping action reminds me of a storm front passing across land. It must be like a wave,” he added.
Heeks’ wife Sarah provided the finger to burst the bubbles as he used a 1/500th of a second shutter speed on a day with “absolutely perfect” weather conditions.
“There was absolutely no wind, the bubbles just hung in the air,” he said.
He took a series of pictures showing the bubble bursting into tiny droplets.
However, Heeks insists that the photographs are genuine, and not created with the help of computer technology.
“This is a real photo of a soap bubble bursting. I’ve made slight edits to raise colour and light, but this is just to add some punch. This is not a Photoshop creation,” he added. (ANI)
