I've had this idea for a while now and finally shot it tonight. I think it works nicely.

Merry Christmas!!

Hi guys,

Thanks for the kind comments. I shot this with a $5 crystal globe I found on ebay and a 100mm macro lens.

Here's a picture of how I did it.

great idea! I was trying to find the camera hiding in the tree, LOL.

I'll have to get me a crystal globe one of these days...

ETA: just ordered one to shamelessly copy this neat idea. Incidentally on a SF photography group on FB Chrystal balls have shown up lately as well with the obligatory bridges in the background and other fun ideas. Thanks for sparking my imagination!


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

Crystal globe!!! I was wondering why the camera wasn't reflected. This is an awesome shot and idea! I think I will need to try this now.

wow, love it. I've had a crystal globe I got a while back and never got round to trying anything with it - might have to see if I can find it :)

A derivative of your glass globe shot uses a highly reflective metallic sphere, you photograph the sphere and thereby gather light vectors that can be used eg in synthetic imagery, eg look up "LuxRender" online. Such software analyses the direction and intensity of the data around the sphere which provides nearly 180 degrees of information for digital scene replication.

I really like the still shots of the ball in some of the footage, thanks for sharing.
