Check out our gallery of high speed study photography from photographer Markus Reugels who has captured absolutely incredible water drop images!
There are entire worlds out there that humans cannot see with the naked eye. With powerful microscopes we are able to observe life at the microscopic (and even atomic) level; and with high-speed cameras we are able to observe events that happen in fractions of a second.
Photographer Markus Reugels focuses on the latter, primarily experimenting with water drops. Through dizzying combinations of lighting, food colouring, surfaces (liquid and solid) and airstreams; Reugels creates incredible liquid art that occurs and disappears in a split-second, but is immortalized through his photography.
Reguels stresses the fact that the images are not Photoshopped and that he only uses post-production software to remove things like sensor dust. All tones and colours are naturally processed and the shapes and patterns are not digitally manipulated.
At the end of the gallery I’ve included some slow-motion video to show how some of the shots are achieved along with an informative video interview with Reugels that delves deeper into his process and set up.

Each drop of a kind!
Water is the element of life, everyone needs it to life and sees it every day . But if anyone has seen the most beautiful forms that can take water?
I’ll show you images that are all made with water and color. With the high-speed photography, it is possible to freeze these millisecond , in such forms exist , in order to present them in unique images.
In my work, I place great value on everything to photograph the way I imagine it . I do not use image manipulation that changes color and form.
Some of my work is possible without technical aids , but the majority can only be realized with a control unit – which does not mean that the technology makes the images, it is only the key and a tool of my creativity to run free.
My pictures are not manipulated with Photoshop ! I only remove sensor dust and small splashes are malfunctioning, the tones and contrasts are naturally processed. I can see that but as a digital darkroom. This allows you to amplify the existing screen again and the image effect
