Title: Hubble Bubble
Post by: Just Dave on January 25, 2011, 05:43:08 PM
Hi

As it was raining again, I made a Bubble tank

So when John came to my house today we had fun and had a go with the bubble tank,

Used my sigma 105 macro, as it was a first go, at first we were looking level with the bubbles, then I noticed it was best to be slightly higher and look down on them, to make the cells stand out better, and give a perspective to the cells

Thanks for looking C+C Welcome

      I was'nt thinking of removing reflections so much as the cross polarising effects you may be able to achieve. Just hold the polariser you do have in front of your lens and rotate it, see what happens.
      Do I have a spare 58mm? Doubt it!..........Oldboy's probably got a box full. :2funny:
