Well, doing portraits is very difficult when the only flash you have is the onboard one and you get heaps of red-eyes from it. Luckily, that isn’t the case with this image.

What is it? Well, its straws of course, with three lights that change colour of their own volition. This time two had a chat and decided to be red while the third was blue. All of this was placed behind a crystal ball….. or should that be a crystal ball was placed in front? Nevermind, you get the picture….

    Still not sure I understand how it all worked, but the shot is great and the colours so vivid. Sometimes we end up with the most amazing things when we experiment.

  • Thanks Warriorprincess, appreciate you taking the time to comment. It was a complicated process setting it all up and took a great deal of time and was also difficult to explain in a few short sentences.
