Snow Through A Crystal Ball

After experimenting with my water drop photos, my wife bought me a large glass ball to experiment with. These are my first try photographing through my Glass Globe (Refraction Photography)

I tried it out on a snow covered tree in front of my neighbors. I used a 50mm Macro lens to try it out. It does not take much to get different views in the globe. Can not wait to try it out in the field with landscapes and gardens. You do have to be careful, it is quite heavy. Plus in sunlight you have to watch because the sun is directed on a subject and can start a fire.

  1. Thanks! It is fun to try new ways to “see” your subjects! And how to “position” your subject in the “ball”. Also it is almost like using a “fisheye” lens.
