The COOPH Team are always up for trying out new and interesting styles of photography and recently, they picked up a lens ball which, as we've discovered ourselves, is a really cool tool for photographers.


One image can change us.

A picture, a moment can change the way we feel. Change how we see ourselves. Change our understanding and change the rules. Provoke and change history.

MPB Gear

MPB puts photo and video kit into more hands, more sustainably. Every month, visual storytellers sell more than 20,000 cameras and lenses to MPB. Choose used and get affordable access to kit that doesn’t cost the earth.

Sell the kit you’re not using to MPB. Trade in for the kit you need to create. Buy used, spend less and get more.

Buy. Sell. Trade. Create.

MPB Start Shopping

A lens ball is, basically, a glass sphere you can use to capture refraction photos in situ.

"As well as having fun, we wanted to bring you some cool tips on what you can shoot with your lens ball. So, watch all 7 tips, enjoy the video and make sure to try it out for yourself and share your results," says the COOPH Team.

Just be careful when using one as they do get rather hot when used outdoors when the sun is shining! 

For inspiration, have a look at some of the images the COOPH Team captured with the lens ball below.
