Photo365 - 4 - Cross Polarisation

Pete

Photography and music are my two passions. I edited photography magazines for around 20 years and launched the UK's first digital imaging magazine. I founded ePHOTOzine and was owner / publisher until 2013. The photos in my portfolio are ones I like from shoots I do in any spare time I have.

Photo365 - 4 - Cross Polarisation

4 Jan 2011 10:23PM   Views : 6727 Unique : 391

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.
