Photo365 - 4 - Cross Polarisation

Today's project is another version of cross polarisation I've been doing a bit of lately. In this example I turned my LCD computer screen on its back facing upwards. This became the base for a collection of cheap disposable shot glasses (1 for 40 from Poundland). I arranged them in a pattern, edged up side by side to create a grid, and then positioned the camera above with a polarising filter attached to the lens.
I adjusted the zoom to ensure a tight crop and took this photo. Exposure was automatic.

Neat - a polarising filter is on my shopping list as is some of the polarising film (which seems to be just a wee bit expensive)....

Yes Jessops used to sell it in their powerflash range and that was a decent price. That's why I use the monitor now. Most items can be positioned in front of the monitor and it acts like a huge lightbox with polarising sheet over the front.


I've got a couple of spare monitors knocking about so shall have a go sometime - I've got some el cheapo poundland 'glasses' somewhere....
