  • Crazy bottle effect!

    Was a bit bored and decided to try this little project out. It was something really simple and took me about 10 minutes to set up and if your bored at home and don't want to go out to take photos this is a great idea to try!


    First you need a background, you can either choose two different colors, you can choose one side to be stripes and the other can be left as a white piece of paper. The options never end! Be creative!!

    Second I taped my two colors that I picked together VERY close leaving no space between, then taped them on a piece of cardboard.

    Next you have to pick a glass of your choice, once again there are tons of options, BUT make sure its glass! Otherwise it wont work! this works because of the waters reflective property and the glass lets us see the "magic"!!!


    Next just set it up so that the colors align, this will take some time. But the end result is really amazing!!

    Finally to make this a more interesting photo I did a 6.0 second shutter speed, meaning I had all the lights out in the room and had it already focused and when I was ready flashed a LED light at the background. This makes each photo different and makes it stand out.
    Did this because thought it be an interesting way of taking this photo.


    If you have any questions please ask!!


    Hope this helps and everyone likes it!!

            Awesome idea! Can you throw more light on this above para while I arrange for the stuff required? I understand that you had a dark room and used 6 seconds shutter but what do you mean by "had it already focused and when I was ready flashed a LED light at the background" ?

            You focused the lens before turning the lights off? And why the LED flashing at the background if it was already in focus?
            You are nothing less than a prostitute if you are working just for money. Also, you are nothing less than an escort if you are working just for money and status. I know my attempts won't take me anywhere but I cannot stop trying.

              Well I set the focus myself, so that when I turned off the light y camera would not do it again, because it would try to focus on a new point after....and as for the flashlight.... i didn't use a flash so I used the LED to get some light otherwise it would be a black picture because there was no light in the room... does it make sense??

                I know that wasn't directed for me, but I think it made sense. It was what I did pretty much, Had all the lights out and a flash light off to the side, I should have placed it better though, you can see where the light mainly hits on my photo.
