2015 Challenge, Week 33: MACRO – CARBONATION

Are you ready for a new macro challenge? Ready for your creativity to bubble up? This week we will be doing macros of carbonation!

“with a twist of orange” by Jonathan Cohen

This challenge can be done with any kind of fizzy beverage. Try different kinds of beverages and see how the bubbles differ and how the colors make a difference in the final image.

“Bubbly 1” by scyrene

You can try different kinds of glasses and different things floating in the liquid for more variety. Try lighting the glass from above, from below, and from the side. This is a great chance to do something abstract and strange!

“The Hardly Visible Distance” by Andrew Smith

You can try all kinds of creative things for this challenge. If you need some inspiration, try searching Flickr…. you never know what will bubble up to the top of the search results.

“Come to a Head” by Adam Meek


The rules are pretty simple:

  • Post one original photograph (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge.org or #photochallenge2015.
  • The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • The posted image should be a photograph, not a video.
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2015 Photo Challenge is fun and easy.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
