Mixed up - Light Painting Refractography

in #photofeed2 months ago

All the colors through a wine glass - refracting light


Well, we looked far into that wine glass before - Let us dive in another time. Red, White, and green for this time. Refractography is super simple to give you many images one after another. Last time I was hesitant to share so many of it. (see the making off video down below)


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.

Purple to add torquise and orange.

With some small twists to the side, the shapes and the patterns change.


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', takes 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.

Apart from that? Got any questions?
I am super happy to explain it in more detail if needed.
