I’ve recently been playing with taking photographs usingan antique magnifying glass and a lensball. It has not been as easy as it looks. I tried taking the shot above with a lensball with no great result. I rather liked this, though.
The shot above is a river in a forest taken through the lensball. I tried a number of shots here. One issue is catching your own reflection. It seems to be a problem if the area behind the ball is darker than where I am standing.
This was taken along some railroad tracks. I got morshiny e of the gravel of the railbed than anything else. One issue was that there are a lot of minerals in the rocks causing bright spots.
The adventure continues….
