Photographer Roman De Giuli is an expert at shooting macro images of colorful fluids for artistic effect. Most of his clips feature multiple shots, but this one is simply a 3-minute video of a single fluid, working all on its own to create visual magic. We know you don’t have an 8K display, so just watch at the highest resolution you can.

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.

Everyday Objects in Macro 2

Everyday Objects in Macro 2

Macro Room calls this video “Everyday Objects From Inside”, but it’s more of a continuation of their Everyday Objects in Macro. Except this time, all of the shots are zooming out from impossibly tight angles. We’d really love to know how they did it.
