Biography


Jack Long, Photographic Artist

The work I have chosen to concentrate on over the recent years has been fluid based photography. There is a certain excitement in seeing liquids suspended in air very briefly and capturing the amazing forms with photography. I work with various devices and technology to produce these forms and to time the precise moment of capture. The ability to automate certain actions has allowed me to more readily repeat desirable outcomes and to adjust the final results. My aim is to produce the image in a single capture, a very short exposure with electronic flash or as with outdoor works, a fast shutter speed.

Digital composition is not used to produce even the most complex formations. My primary goal as an artist and photographer is to create the most visually interesting and aesthetically pleasing images possible. The art is very much in the creation of the forms. Photography, through composition and lighting, are the only means to view these very brief events.
