Regular Random – Playing with Prisms

I love experimenting with light in my photography, but up until recently, I have never really played with prisms, adding another element to my macro photography. I had a friend let me have a brief play with them on a recent trip to The Butterfly House, at Melbourne Zoo.

Rather strange, but pleasing results, in just a few minutes of play, enough to know I wanted to try more. So I have ordered a set, from Canada and now eagerly await their arrival, so I can play some more. I only tried two of the three that come in the set I have ordered.

Would you like to join in the RegularRandom crew? Here’s how:

Version 1:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

Version 2:

  • choose an object
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • put the object in different locations to see how the background or surroundings can change the way the object looks
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

Looking forward to seeing your shots. Don’t forget to check out Desley’s Page for the Regular Random showdown.

Yours in light and inspiration…
