Bubble Rip (Storm Wave)

A popping soap bubble. 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.


I'd trade some light for depth of field here, but I like the shot. The ripping action reminds me of a storm front passing across land. It must be like a wave.


I've taken other bubble popping photos, so have a look in my Bubbles set for more.


I think those tearing streaks form lines. What do you think?


This photo has featured in the UK national press, numerous magazines, and has had mentions on TV (including GMTV and Good Morning America).
