Influencer Uses Bubbles, Light And iPhone To Create Incredible Visual Art

This captivating footage shows how an artist uses frozen soap bubbles, light tricks and his iPhone to create incredible visual artwork.

Amthel Al-Dayni, who was born in the Iraqi capital Baghdad and moved to the city of Grand Rapids in the US state of Michigan in 2010, works for a home improvement company but is passionate about photography.

Amthel, who has 121,000 followers on Instagram, said: “Photography has been a part of my entire life. My lack of confidence as a young boy was always telling me that I can only express my love of photography by looking at beautiful images, not really making them.

“Until 2017, that’s when I decided to step over my fears and start taking pictures with my phone.

“I feel that I’m on a mission to make photography easier with simple gear for beginners and even advanced photographers. That’s why I make free short videos on Instagram reels and TikTok.

“I have close to half million followers that are learning from every video I post. The videos have really easy steps that you can follow to create the same results I make.”

Amthel, who lives in Michigan with his wife, two-year-old son, and three dogs, told Newsflash: “I enjoy experimenting with different things. I enjoy failing and trying again. I believe that the reward is in the process, not only in the results.

“I wasn’t sure that it was possible working in such a way until I saw my son’s soap-bubble can and I thought of giving it a shot.

“For years I thought this soap-bubble video will not work because of all the challenges like weather temperature, wind, recipe mixture of the dish soap, glycerin and water.”

He added: “I use an eight-year-old Nikon D750 camera, but most of my successful videos are done with my iPhone 12 Pro Max.

“What I love most about photography is the creativity. One of the most common questions I get asked by beginners is ‘how can I become creative?’

“Creativity is something we can improve by trying different things and by having a mindset that it is okay to fail. The more we fail the more creative we get. The videos I post are about 20 percent of the videos I make, about 80 percent of my work is unusable content. But the idea is the more we fail the more we succeed.

“A lot of beginners are scared of failing. They don’t try anything unless it gives them a high chance of success up front and before attempting on anything. One of my favourite quotes of all time is by author Scott Adams: ‘Creativity Is Allowing Yourself to Make Mistakes. Art Is Knowing Which Ones to Keep’.”
