How to take Powerful and Breathtaking portraits!

I bet you are wondering what exactly I am talking about - photographs taken with a drop of water? Well, it's not about portrait photographs of a drop of water. No. It is in fact portraits that were taken using a drop of water as the lens. But 'how' you might be thinking. For instance, how do you focus the image with only a lens made out of a drop of water?

Well, the fascinating story starts with a photographer and a bottled water company. Then add some weird science, some willing subjects and a bit of electricity and bingo!

No, I am serious. If you don't believe me then just watch the fascinating video below. It's enough to drive you to drink!

Isn't it amazing how creative people can be with just a drop of water and some inspiration? Personally, I think the portraits are beautiful. There is an ethereal quality to them and they almost look like paintings.

What do you think? BTW the photographer was Robin de Puy and it's worth checking out her website. I think you will find her work not only interesting but also challenging.
