I swear … inspiration for photographic concepts comes from the weirdest of places.
And in this case … it involved 2:00 a.m. insomnia scrolling on social media. It’s where I saw what appeared to be an advertisement for a very cool kaleidoscope.
To be more precise … it’s a Pyramidion Kaleidosphere.
This device. Gaze and be amazed.
Where’s my wallet? Shit, I want one of these gizmos and I want it YESTERDAY!!
Because I’m thinking … what if I attach that device to one of my cameras and use it to capture images? Man, every one of those shots would be ultra-incredible.
This could be lots of fun. Repeat after me. LOTS. OF. FUN.
Now I could go in a couple of directions with this. I could place the Pyramidion Kaleidosphere over a camera lens and shoot directly through to capture that beautiful light pattern – OR – I could pull back enough so that people can see the targeted object WITH the Pyramidion Kaleidosphere in frame.
Man, I love it when a plan comes together. Now all I need is to call B.A., Face and Murdock and …
Yeah. Let’s get the object first and then go from there, shall we?
This came in the mail yesterday. Take a look at this.
I think I can use this to cast “Magic Missile” in a Dungeons and Dragons game.
All right. Let’s point this thing at a light source, look inside the device, and take a picture of what’s in there.
Wow. Seriously. Wow.
Hey, let’s see what I get if I hold this gizmo directly over the camera lens so that there’s nothing but kaleidoscope imagery here.
And I get … this.
Hey, who needs to spend $300 million for a Marvel movie about the quantum universe when you can spend $40 and shoot the movie through your camera phone and get this for a result?
Yeah, I’m seriously digging this. And if you see a bunch of photos like this in the future on this blog page …
You know I’m looking for that one image that could make the short pile for Competition Season 2023.
You know I am. 😀
I look forward to your progress, especially your choice of subjects.
