About 2 weeks ago, I happen to come across an article on using a Crystal Glass Ball for Photography. I found this to be an interesting thing to do, so I thought I'd give this a try and see what it's all about. I went to Amazon and ordered one of these Balls and it came to me via UPS truck. Kinda neat, I think. It looks just like the one pictured above, but without the Acrylic stand, you see. That has to be ordered separately. However, a small nice little polished wooden stand did come with it.
So, with my NEW thing, I decided to go give this a try. I found it it's not quite as easy to do as you might think. First, I had to find a place to put this and what to put it on. I used one of my Tripods that was broken to set the Ball on and it would reflect what was behind the Ball. Set up my Pentax K10d and set it to Micro so I can get up close to it. Not really knowing what I'm doing, I kept trying. Got everything right and using a Remote Shutter I pressed the button.
This is the 1st Image that I took. With a small amount of Post Processing in Lightroom CC, I got it to look like this. Not too bad for the 1st time!
Here is the 2nd Image I took. Much better I think!
I'm going to keep playing with this and see what I can come up with. I think that there are many possibilities.
Until next time.
