Through the Looking Glass

Love the fish-eye effect photographing through a crystal ball. Here’s a couple of shots taken on vacation last week. I shot many images and was pleased to have six keepers.

The first image was shot with my 24-105 lens at 35mm. The second, sunset image was shot with my 10-22 wide-angle lens at 22mm. For more camera information or to purchase, click on the photo. To see some inspiring shots using a glass ball check out the photostream of sooze on flickr. If you’re interested in purchasing a crystal ball to try this technique yourself, the one in these photos was purchased from Amazon.
