Photographers all over the world have found something absolutely incredible happens when you blow soap bubbles in the freezing winter temperatures. As these delicate bubbles freeze almost instantly, inside each one a unique universe of patterns and shapes comes to life right in front of your eyes. If you're lucky enough to be enduring the worldwide cold front we're having, give this a shot to make the brutal winter more fun and beautiful.
I'm going to be bundling up and giving this a shot this weekend here in Michigan. I was surprised to hear that actually photographing them is the easiest part, getting the bubbles on the right surface to freeze however can be a little tricky. If you're willing to bear the freezing temperatures with me, here's a great tutorial with the tricks you'll need to successfully capture some of these miniature magical snow globes.
Here are some of the best frozen soap bubble photographs I found on Instagram for some inspiration.
This project is awesome because each bubble comes out looking completely different from the next one. As long as it's cold enough, you can take them anywhere for a diverse range of backgrounds to photograph your creations. If you have done this already or try this soon share your images in the comments.
