Filling my wine glass with photons - Refractorgaphy Light Painting

in #photocircle12 days ago (edited)

Well, we looked far deeper into that wine glass.

Here is more material from that Refractography night. The beautiful thing about that technique is that you do that it's super simple to create many more images one after another. Last time I was hesitant to share so many of it. So here is a deep dive into colors and shapes created by the glass properties of that wine glass.

For the first shot, I used 3 different colored flashlights at the same time.

The principle stays the same: The camera is all open without even a lens and a refraction object is in front of the camera. One, two, or even 3 light sources are positioned to shed the refractions onto the sensor of the camera.

Pro Tip:

Make sure your light sources are as small as possible. Just tape your light source and pinch a hole into the tape. Good enough. See here, this is how I did it.

The second option like in the 'making of video', take your light source far away. I had the camera in the living room and the light in the kitchen. That was an easy 10-12m distance.

Here is how:

I really tried to keep it super short and simple.

I hope it was somewhat inspirational. If you have more questions please do not hesitate. I am happy to share my knowledge.
