Crystal Ball photography

May 20, 2019  •  2 Comments

Photography is such a creative art form that in my opinion has no limits.  Well, perhaps to the degree that one chooses to limit one's own imagination.  Your photographic inspirations can come from many different ways: beautiful land or seascapes, nature and wildlife, portraits and weddings, architecture, the night sky and so much more.  And with the myriad of cameras, accessories and sophisticated software available, you can create stunning images that you'd be proud to frame and hang on the wall.  But what do you do when you hit a dry spell and all of the aforementioned stuff is still not enough to get your creative juices flowing?  Just do what I did.  Buy a new, uh...er...toy!  See below.

 

I purchased a crystal ball yesterday with the hopes that it would be the catalyst to enable me to produce some fresh new photos.  Lens balls, as they are sometimes called, are not new to the photography world.  Just search on Google and you will find tons and tons of articles, tutorials and photos of people using these balls in their photography.  This is the first one I have ever owned and the first time using one to make photographs.  Let me tell you.....they are a LOT of FUN!  I decided to take photos in a completely darkened room with an LED light and create unique patterns and reflections.  The results were mind blowing!  I could not have been more satisfied with the results.  The images had a futuristic "sci-fi" feel to them and the really cool thing is that no two photos will ever be alike no matter how hard you try.  There are so many more creative things that can be done with a lens ball and I look forward to creating more compelling and imaginative images with it.  Scroll down to see the photos I took.
