dissolving life by suzi9mm dissolving life by suzi9mm
i'm not sure about the title...it sounds slightly too romantisized perhaps, but blood is life and...

this ain't larger than life obviously, i got the idea from a funny video i saw. i was just explaining in my journal about how taking this seemed to be just impossible, all the forces of nature being against me, after every failed shot i had to empty the glass and wipe it clean and try again. the damn (fakeblood) dissolves really fast so it's a one time chance after dropping the knife there. it looks pretty weird actually, perhaps not how u expect a liquid to look... but it's pretty much like in the video i saw. also the blood looks really weird in parts, like pixelated or something, but nothing inside the glass has been touched. at all. i cleaned up the surrounding, from relections and stuff. i wish the glass was of better quality, some of the distortions in the edges esp. are dull, but all in all it's good quality, my trusted sigma 105mm does a good job.

sorry i can't offer you a bigger size, a big print shall look great though. also, as you've noticed i have to put my name on every photo nowadays to slow down ripping.

hope you enjoy this. i kinda like simple stuff like this. i hope your monitors are working esp. in the white extreme cos the details of the glass easily disappear. also forgive me if it appears in your watch again in case i decide to change the title.

you did a great job there. I'm curious to know how u set it up ? I mean the transparency of the glass looks just amazing, so what is actually in the background? Did u you use any light source to enhance the brightness ?

This picture is amazing on multiple levels. It lets your mind's imagination make up explanations to how this happened or how it happened to. The drop of blood on the glass add uniqueness to the original idea

i used food colouring to take shots like this. it gave a more flowing effect but it doesn't look as realistic as this. and i got it all over my hands which wasn't so good. great shot though xo

I like this piece because it encompasses how fragile life is, even when professionals (dr's) are trying to save it using their tools. It reminds me of Dad being on the operating table during his cancer, and how lucky we are to still have him - how fine that line might have been.
