Single Malt Scotch Art

“One fateful morning, photographer Ernie Button picked up the Scotch glass he had left out overnight and noticed something — a pattern in the film of dried liquid at the bottom of his cup. So began Vanishing Spirits: The Dried Remains of Single Malt Scotch, an ongoing project in which Button experiments with photographing Scotch residues, shining different lights through them, manipulating the dry patterns, or letting them run hog wild. The result looks like miniature magic planets or puddles of gold or oil — pretty gorgeous for something accidentally left on the counter.”

The Travel Photography

“While on a backpacking trip through India two years ago, 23-year-old student Lukas Kozmus realized how much he enjoyed using his tiny Sony camera to photograph the Ganges river, the Taj Mahal and other sights. After returning he quickly purchased a better DSLR and took it with him on treks to Nepal, Indonesia and of course carried it around his native Berlin, all the while snapping the wonderfully dreamlike images you see here.”

Strike a Pose!

“Award-winning photographer Tim Flach has spent years inquiring into the essential bond we have with animals. His work showcases a menagerie of creatures—pandas, tigers, bats, lions, orangutans, cobras, bullfrogs, chimpanzees, wolves, porcupines, elephants, owls, armadillos, among many others—as they have never been seen before.”

Miniature Worlds

“Amazing images of photographer Matthew Albanese  appear to show beautiful outdoor scenes, but were actually shot  on a tabletop in his studio. He creates extremely detailed dioramas that take  months to complete, and then uses various photographic techniques to make the  scene look like the real world. It’s like the opposite of using tilt-shift  lenses to turn the world into a miniature model. While we shared some of his final works last time,  this time we’re showing glimpses of how those photographs were made. Each final  work will be preceded by one or more photographs showing a behind-the-scenes  look of the same scene.”

Fields, After the Storm

This model is simply made out of faux fur(fields), cotton (clouds) and sifted  tile grout(mountains). The perspective is forced as in all of my images, and the  lighting effect was created by simply shifting the white balance […] Faux Fur  was used to create the texture of flowing waves of grain. The sunset was  achieved by shifting the white balance with the addition of colored gels.  Cotton, canvas and mixed light temperatures create a sunset.

Wildfire

Diorama made from wood, moss, yellow glitter, clear garbage bags, cooked  sugar, scotch-brite pot scrubbers, bottle brushes, clipping from a bush in bloom  (white flowers) clear thread, sand, tile grout (coloring), wire, paper and  alternating yellow, red and orange party bulbs […] Most of the trees were  suspended at different heights to enhance the destructive illusion of the  fire.

The fire effect was created by beaming colored party bulbs through a clear  garbage bag.

Aurora Borealis

This one was made by photographing a beam of colored light against a black  curtain to achieve the edge effect. The trees were composited from life (so far  the only real life element in any of these images) The stars are simply strobe  light through holes in cork board […] a cork-board with holes punched through  it. Strobes were fired from behind to create bursts of starry light.

Icebreaker

25 pounds of sugar cooked at varying temperatures (hard crack & pulled  sugar recipes) It’s basically made out of candy. salt, egg whites, corn syrup,  cream of tartar, powdered sugar, blue food coloring, india ink & flour.  Three days of cooking, and two weeks of building […] Each icicle was shaped  and applied by hand. Dough was sculpted to look like a glacier  ridge.

Everything We Ever Were

It took two months to store up enough fireplace ash to create this lunar  landscape. The darker rocks are made of mixed tile grout, flag crumpled paper & wire. The Earth is a video still projected onto the wall. Inspired by the  Apollo 11 mission.

Salt Water Falls

Model made out of glass, plexiglass, tile grout, moss, twigs, salt, painted  canvas & dry ice. The waterfall was created from a time exposure of falling  table salt.

Breaking Point

Volcano made out of tile grout, cotton, phosphorous ink. this model volcano  was illuminated from within by 6-60 watt light bulbs. The explosion of lava was  sampled from a picture I took of fireworks (the only composited  element).

How to Breathe Underwater

Diorama made out of walnuts, poured and cast candle wax, wire, glitter,  peanut shells, flock, plaster, wire, dyed starfish, compressed moss, jellybeans  (anemones), sponges, wax coated seashells, toothpaste, clay, figs, feathers,  Q-tips, nonpareils. Surface of the water was created using vinyl shower curtain,  plexiglass and clear epoxy. The reflected sunlight effect was created using a  video projector through fake fog. The white balance was set for tungsten  allowing the sunlight to appear bright and clear while the strobes provided a  deep blue shift in the fill light regions. The lens was covered with a piece of  blue stretch wrap which created subtle distortions throughout the image. A total  of 11 light sources were used including the projector.

New Life #1 and New Life #2

Diorama made using painted parchment paper, thread, hand dyed ostrich  feathers, carved chocolate, wire, raffia, masking tape, coffee, synthetic  potting moss and cotton. Inside of the willow tree made mostly from thread and  ostrich feathers. The tree took over two months of construction time. Cotton  batting dyed green was used to prevent too much light from passing through  during the shooting process.
