Photographing splashes and liquid pours is a magical experience but it is not easy at all so to make a really good shot you have to be patient and spend a lot of time trying to. This very complex image of a girl holding an orb of water called "The Magic of Water" was done by Alex Koloskov, a commercial liquid photographer.
Behind the scenes video of shooting the image presents a set of lighting and the interaction between model and Koloskov’s team. As you can see in the film, they try to combine shoot of the model and the splash in time of the photo session. Of course, the final composition was designed with Photoshop in post.
