Milwaukee-based photographer Jack Long captures stunning pictures of water, ink, and other liquids in motion to create mesmerizing photo experiments.
My work is high-speed fluid formation photography. I work to get fluids suspended in air for very brief moments and capture their incredible shapes with very short exposure times. Electronic flash is generally used to stop the action, but I have done some outdoor works as well. All of my work is unique and unlike anything previously created. I have no interest in recreating what has already been done. While I may borrow from other genres for inspiration, I will not try to replicate. I don’t even like doing my own ideas more than once. I have a few selected techniques that I use that are self discovered. I am working to get the most out of these methods. The new and sometimes surprising results are what keep me going.Jack Long
