Daily Photo 246: The Alchemist’s Apprentice
Astrid’s area of expertise is chemistry, very specifically the chemicals used in photography. In her society most technology is restricted, so much of her work needs to be done by herself with what she can scavenge or steal and it’s quite labour intensive. 
I don’t shoot dramatic lighting enough. But I’m so glad I finally got to photograph Astrid with one of the scales I got her. And you can actually see the lace pattern on her pullover! It’s hard to see in person and even harder to photograph. But it’s perfect scale to the original full size pattern I altered. :D

This is most probs my favourite picture of Astrid ever.

Breathtaking views show the stars, Milky Way, airglow, and light pollution over New Zealand skies.

"Here are images I captured during last months from New Zealand. Great country to catch colors of airglow almost everywhere…" - Petr Horálek

Porcelain Figures series by photographer Martin Klimas

From a height of three meters, porcelain figurines are dropped on the ground, and the sound they make when they hit trips the shutter release. The result: razor-sharp images of disturbing beauty—temporary sculptures made visible to the human eye by high-speed photography technology. The porcelain statuette bursting into pieces isn’t what really captures the attention; the fascination lies in the genesis of a dynamic figure that replaces the static pose. In contrast to the inertness of the intact kitsch figurines Klimas started out with, the photographs of their destruction possess a powerfully narrative character.” (text from martin-klimas.de)
