Yeah i actually think it as plastic now because milk can't 'fold' that way ;I

i think that the dress looks a bit like a plastic bag. But it's still good, it's nothing negative.

I promise I am no photographer. So I can't comment on the technique. I am an artist thou so I'll say This moves me. The images run the gauntlet between whimsical and deeply sensual. Its like you've captured the slightest hint of magic. Well Done

Alexiuss,
Your fluid works are treasures! Utilizing the best of model, photography, fluid dynamics and perhaps some very creative computer enhancements you create story and life from a simple fluid, and lovely young ladies. Absolutely phenominal!

Actually it's not, if you have a good understanding of physics and how water/liquids move. This is very much real.I can tell by looking that this wasn't manipulated in.

Would you say a speed of 1/10,000th of a second is absolutely required for this type of work?

This series is filled with such amazing photos.
They're almost unbelievable!!

:iconalexiuss:

well yeah,
otherwise at slower speed the liquid is going to blur in motion like this:
