I is For Idea

Sometimes, I see some thing and think I should try it. Earlier this week I watched a video where a photographer used a glass ball to take pictures through. I have a glass (crystal) ball or two around, and thought, “Hey! I want to try that, what a great idea!”

It took a little wrangling to do, because I was on my own, with 4 horses trying to help me. Lots of shots, but only 4 that were visually interesting…

I kinda like this one, but I was ruched in setting it up, so the stand for the ball is tilted...

Ruby and Astrid were on their way, and I didn’t want them knocking the ball and stand off the fence post.

I love the image inside the ball, but find the overall image unsatisfying...

Again, Ruby was on her way, and I was shooting fast!

Better!

Better!

This one is much better, but still not 100% satisfied with it.

This one is the best of the bunch!

Of all the crystal ball shots I did today, this one is the most satisfying to me. It’s interesting, and I think the idea worked well. I definitely want to try this again, but with a couple of helpers to assist with the equine helpers. πŸ˜‰

I is for idea and interesting.

  1. How clever! I wouldn’t have thought about them being upside down in the crystals! I like that last one too πŸ™‚

  2. That is a cool idea! I must try it, too. My favorite is the top one because of the surreal thing it does in my head looking at the photo.
