Refraction and reflection

by Helen Hooker March. 03, 2009 4152 views

The idea for today??s photo came from a photography magazine I picked up a couple of weeks ago and I??ve been saving it for a grey weather day. I bought some smarties, surrounded them with a paper tube then shot them through the lid of a CD case with some droplets of glycerine on the top. I??ve not been able to get the refracted images of the smarties quite as sharply in focus as I would have liked but I can see it??s an effect I??ll try again with another subject. Once I??d got the photos on the computer I also noticed some reflections ?? of the window frames in my music room where I shot it. These photos also mark the 10,000th photo with my camera as I noticed the file numbers had reset to zero on my fifth frame. 10,000 shots since mid-June 2008 ?? one of the joys of digital photography - I certainly wouldn??t have taken that number of photos if I??d been shooting with film!

What a great idea. 10,000 shots in 9 months - that takes some doing!
