Photographer uses water splash to capture stunning images of butterflies
A 19-year-old high school student from Switzerland created a series of stunning pictures of butterflies against a magical backdrop of sprays of water, turning his back on fancy filters and photoshop trickery.
The photographer, Etienne Francey, waited patiently to capture each atmospheric moment while the butterflies stayed still. Instead of using computer effects, he simply sprayed water to enhance the blurred areas and partly covered the camera lens to produce the ethereal effect.
The team of Russian photographers and specialists by Air Pano travels the world to take stunning aerial photos of the world’s most beautiful locations.
“Although we usually photograph from a helicopter, we also like to shoot from an airplane, a dirigible, a hot air balloon, and a radio-controlled helicopter,” they write. The most interesting thing about their approach, however, is the fully 360-degree displays that they make available on their websites. Using AirPano’s special viewer, visitors can pan around and look in every direction, making them feel like they’re really on location.
