Macro photography series Beautiful Chemistry presents an up-close look at the formation and behavior of bubbles, with different chemical solutions and electrical charges producing some very different volumes, sizes, and arrangements of the air-filled orbs. The accompanying soundtrack is wonderfully soothing.
THE BEST Macro
Artist Roman De Giuli captured this incredibly vibrant and sharp short film using paints, fluids, pigments, and sparkly bits poured onto paper. Shot with an 8K camera for extra detail, and enhanced with HDR if your display supports it. It’s amazing how much the images look like galaxies.
The Slow Mo Guys took their pricey Phantom high-speed camera, mounted it sideways, attached a macro probe lens to it, and then focused it inside the vortex created by a self-stirring tumbler. The resulting slow-motion footage is a truly amazing look at fluid dynamics.
BBC Earth show The Hunt captured crisp macro footage of hotrod ants, as they make their way through the scorching 150ºF+ Namib desert, where it’s so hot that they would die if they stopped in the sun for even a few seconds. But the extreme heat isn’t their only foe.
Using multiple lenses, along with some editing trickery, the folks at Macro Room take us up close and personal with a variety of ordinary objects, then zoom out so we can see what we were actually looking at. We were so convinced that Coke bottle cap was a red bell pepper.
