In this photograph it’s intend to show the subtle interaction of only two elements of nature, feathers and drops of water. It is the inherent ability of birds to repel water that keeps them dry, their feathers are naturally impermeable.
For this photograph was used only feathers of Brazilian native birds, feathers of blue macaw, parrot and maritacas, with their different colors and formats. These feathers are visually appealing natural elements, but it is through this macro perspective that we are able to appreciate this beauty that otherwise would not be possible.
It is this repellent property that has generated perfect water spheres that virtually float beneath the surface of the feather. Observed from a macro perspective, it is possible to admire the beauty of these impeccably round and translucent water pearls, revealed in these photos in a singular way, in order to show the influence of light when crossing these drops. Due to the optical phenomenon of refraction created by water, these water droplets have the ability to deflect the light that crosses them, functioning exactly like a magnifying glass.
The arrangement of impeccably parallel and symmetrical stripes that, together with the unique patterns and colors of these small filaments, unveiled an organic and abstract design, so pleasing when appreciated from this point of view. The spectator is invited to get lost in the personal interpretation of this world that could easily go unnoticed.
Author: Hi, I'm Bruno Militelli, a Brazilian born in São Paulo and a photographer specialized in Fine Art images in the abstract and macro style.
I have been a dedicated photographer since 2012 and my interest in photography began as a hobby, but it was through my photos that I found a way to be more present. By putting all the attention in the click of my camera, I am carried by a true sensation of fullness and satisfaction.
Since I began to photograph, my passion for this type of art has grown naturally from the desire to capture unique perspectives. Over time I came to see my digital camera as a modern instrument capable of transporting me to a new, unexplored world where I can discover places and sights still unknown.
Through my work, I look for an abstract but still natural result, developing an individual perspective and allowing my viewer to also enjoy the object photographed by this new point of view. With each image I hope to be able to portray the singular beauty of this object, showing its unique elements and patterns.
My style can best be described as vivid and naturalistic, I use simple compositions combining lights, contrast and color to capture even the most fleeting details, emphasizing how beautiful and intriguing the planet we live in and call home.
