I wanted to talk a little bit about refractions in photography. I first came across these in LordV's flickr account. Amazing shots of droplets of water refracting flowers and other thigns inside the ball.
I went out this morning and got a few dew shots on the grass, and at one point used a small flower to try and capture its reflection inside the ball of water.
these are my attempts

Another same framing but I covered the spotlight that was lighting the scene so the trichs were in shadow and the yellow MNS seedpack was in full light. No harsh burned highlights and also it gives a movie theater like effect ;)

here is a quick one i did, i would have spent more time perfecting the shot but my batteries died. i was trying to get a clear bead & a shot without any secondary images in the shot but oh well, here it is...

Yeah i love them to, AWESOME shot l33t.
i still havent pulled one off.
I need to go back to the instructional or something.
can't seem to put the plant at the right angle to make anything show up in the trichome...

i will keep trying for the trichome refractions though for sure...

thanks for sharing guys

Killer refractions L33t and I especially like that water droplet thenewguy,



I took my camera rig over to a buddies a few months back in an attempt to capture some refractions,..... not my best work but you get the idea....

l33t - that trichome shot is stunning. i was thinking of redoing that droplet shot now that i have my lights back & new softbox constructed.

green machine - nice idea with the greatful dead skull & the bob marley
i would love too see more of these & your creative ideas:pray:

i will try to come up with a few myself... i don't think i can do any trichome shots cuz my camera doesn't get that close (fujifilm finepix s5700), but i would love to see all of yours. party on ~TheNewGuy
