Title: Dynamic interference colors in a thin soap film

Description: These dynamic interference colors produced in a thinning soap film established in a frame dipped in soap solution, like you would for making soap bubbles, were made by Prof. Andrew Davidhazy of the Imaging and Photographic Technology department at RIT. Due to the fast changing nature of the flow patterns short duration electronic flashes were reflected from a white surface located next to the camera lens. The magnification at the sensor when the images were made was close to 1:1.

There is a text available online that describes the process of making the photographs. It is available at:
