Photography is a hard enough skill to master, but what truly sets apart great photographers from mediocrity is the ability to capture an image and leave people wondering, “How is that possible?” Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz of AurumLight Studio has accomplished this with his portraits of SuperHeroes wearing costumes made of… splashed milk?
It sounds strange, but the product is absolutely stunning, crisp and original.
You might be asking, “What’s something else that sets photographers apart?” Luckily, Jaroslav has provided us with the answer.
Not only does he do this amazing work, he’s incredibly generous with his process and has been kind enough to release a video and a demo showing exactly how he accomplishes this effect. It’s time consuming, uncomfortable work, but entirely worth it.
With all of the commotion surrounding the Photoshopping of images, Jaroslav has given us a tremendous example of the ability to use Photoshop to it’s full and glorious potential without sacrificing the integrity of the captured image.

Photos of ‘Splash Heroes' Who Wear Costumes Made of Milk… and Nothing Else (NSFW)
A superhero isn’t much of a superhero without a proper costume; whatever your stance on the controversial subject of capes, that much remains true. But the ‘splash heroes’ in talented commercial photographer and 500px user Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz‘s latest series are wearing costumes the likes of which you’ve never seen before.
They’re not wearing latex, they’re not wearing kevlar, they’re not even wearing armor. Nope, these costumes are made of colored milk… and nothing else.
Which makes the resulting portraits of these superheroes both awesome, and a bit Not Safe for Work. Consider yourself warned (and probably intrigued).
