Photos of colours in soap films

The colours of soap bubbles and soap films is a result of so-called interference of the light reflected from (and in some special cases transmitted through) the soap film. In photos below we have tried to optimized the illumination conditions to enhance the colours, for example by using a light table. Here we are using a white light source containing all colours.
