How to take a visual image of something you can only hear? Not a concept I had given much thought to until I bought a photography magazine that had an amazing article on that very thing.
Take one large speaker + a flexible membrane + lots of coloured paint + camera = AMAZING paint splash photos
Doing some research online I see its also called Sound Painting
The above image is now my desktop image on my computer, I love it SO MUCH – this and all the other fabulous shots Linden took are here
Someone in a forum I posted in about this subject suggested doing the same sort of thing but with hundreds and thousands, or the silver dragee balls, which I thought was brilliant. So much safer and less messy than lots and lots of paint. And cheaper too.
I would *love* to try experimenting with this, but I don’t have a garage that I could setup to do it in, nor do I have a speaker or the other bits and pieces you need to really get the good shots. Man it would be awesome fun tho!
