Shooting liquid bubbles

These sorts of bubble shots are often used for advertising campaigns and for different sorts of wall art. The principles and techniques are pretty straight forward if you know how to set up and properly execute the shot. Learn in this chapter how you can light this shot perfectly and create a setup to shoot bubble after bubble until you get the perfect shot.


  1. This is very nice, I can try it once I get a fish tank. I use Canon as well. Can I use high sync mode to fire flash faster?
    Happy shooting 🙂

      1. Thanks Karl. I am hobbyist and never bothered to learn deep in to it , I started on that course. I actually cancelled my membership as I lost my job but I will come back once I find one :). Really like the teaching. I am setting up my second bedroom as studio so that I can experiment stuff 🙂 Could you please add more videos for hobbyist people like using flashlights or how to help regular people to pose and angles of the camera/lighting, working with different skin tones (like Asians)? As most of them do not have such expensive equipment.

  2. If you used the Canon dslr would you have to ensure the ambient was not affecting the exposure as the synch speed is 1/200th max,cheers Rob

    1. Hi Robert, yes that’s exactly right but you’d probably be also shooting at small aperture like f16 for greater depth of field so very little ambient light would get it. Just shoot in a dimly lit room and you can test this first by take a shot without the flash and seeing if any ambient light is recorded.
