High-speed photographer Jack Long takes captures of colored water eruptions that resemble stained-glass jellyfishes. Suspended in mid-air, these liquid forms only last a fraction of a second, and some shots require two cameras to create a three-dimensional effect. Jack Long calls them “Giants,” and as pretty as they look, they actually take a lot of time and planning to make: from building a submersible apparatus to numerous water burst tests. “Fortunately my property borders The Milwaukee River and it is quite shallow in some areas, so I would load my gear into my canoe, find a good location and set up. I tried to photograph from the boat at first, but found that to be very unstable, so I decided to actually get out of the boat and wade my way around the boat, camera and fountain. With everything firmly anchored, I could create numerous variations. All of the colorants are non-toxic and bio safe,” he states to Illusion.
