Glass ball photography
Although unable to show the future, shooting through a glass ball does produce some eye-opening effects. The smooth curvature of a glass ball creates a distorted, fish-eye like reflection to the backdrop. To start, position the ball securely on a crevice or table – you don’t want it to roll away. Once steadied, you will notice the reflection to be upside down. Use a bokeh effect if you want to avoid the distraction, but the inverted background often makes for an interesting element for the viewers. A general piece of advice on the composition is to fill the glass ball with as much of the subject as possible, which requires repositioning the ball closer to the subject. Use this technique to capture your favorite landscapes and architecture, framed within a mesmerizing sphere!
All this information might seem overwhelming at the moment, but it will all click with practice and experimentation. It is ultimately down to your creative sense on abstract visual art and persistence to capture brilliantly unique images.
