I don’t own a fancy camera; but from time to time I can still do something interesting by playing with tools that are not attached to the camera – lights, magnifying glass… Here I aimed to shoot a picture where the 5×5mm paper folded, miniature origami heart beneath the magnifying glass appears in focus while everything else is blurred with the help of some optical physics.
I played with the zoom features in my camera a bit. I could have taken the image up close, but that would not have created the same effect as taking from afar and zooming in. I had to position the camera in the right distance, meanwhile having the lens within the camera in the right position to get what I wanted. Admittedly though, there was a bit of photo manipulation ; I did blur the background more in photoshop, but the cosmo like effect (the heartbeat) inside the magnifying glass is real.
And since the heart is seen through a magnifying glass it appears bigger here than it really is
