PLUME - Art Collective, Ernest Otoo and Andy Pilsbury capturing ink in water with Phase One IQ3 50MP Digital Back

Fine art photography: Mesmerising ink in water

Experience the Instagram takeover showcasing the mesmerizing behavior of ink in water; the perfect example of the stunning results capable with the IQ3 50MP Digital Back. “Collective Growth” is the new body of work from the duo at PLUME – Art Collective, Ernest Otoo and Andy Pilsbury. The resulting quality, sharpness, and abstract nature of the medium means even micro-compositions can be found within the full-scale image. “We used the Schneider Kreuznach LS 80mm, which provided us with exceptional clarity and edge to edge sharpness. Part of the quality of our work lies in the clarity of the content. Being able to see details up close on our large scales prints is a real selling point for us.” – Andy Pilsbury See more on our Instagram profile here.  Explore the products mentioned in this story:

Focus stacking with Isamu Sawa

Focus stacking with Isamu Sawa

We joined Isamu Sawa in Australia where he gave us an insight into his personal projects while explaining his Focus Stacking technique. Isamu Sawa captures the beauty of re-emerging colorful flora against the black devastation of bushfires in Australia. Isamu captured multiple macro images with sequential focus points and combined them with specialized software in order to artificially maximize the depth of field of his subject shot on the IQ1 80MP Digital Back. The series preserves brief moments in the slow composition and death of profound beauty. The dried and wilting flowers photographed were all sourced from wedding ceremonies and furnished by Isamu’s wife who is a bridal florist. Explore his “Without Water” project here.
