    I don't really know much besides the brief description given with the images. If I was to try this, I think I would make a pinhole box camera. I would cover the pinhole with a jewel, gem, crystal or piece of broken glass. Over that I would make a shutter of foil. I almost wrote "fail" there. I would load the camera with some pretty slow film and experiment with how long to keep the shutter open vs. how much ambient light. The source of the ambient light would be the next experimental factor after that. It would be a pretty fun experiment.

    Keep in mind, of course, that I started this note by saying I don't know what I'm talking about :confused:. It would still be fun.

    Yeah, whatever.

    If he had released this before it was so easy to do on the computer, or at least revealed a bit behind it (I'd be fine even if a contact print of a roll of negs or something was posted), I'd be more likely to believe him.

    I would imagine, This effect or similar to it can be achieved, in a dark room by placing or clipping the film on a flat, upright surface. Then take a translusent peice of glass or plastic and place it in front of the suspended film. Then turn on small lights (of varying colors from various locations maybe) for short intervals.



    My niece gets these little overly textured plastic craft things that she paints. With my knowledge of pearlessant automotive paint and one or two of those I think I could pull this off. I would just need an acceptable dark room.

    *EDIT* Now that I go back and read the damn blurb I see I just reasaid what they said :x

    Not hard- put film in camera, take off lens, tape translucent plastic or glass over camers mount, snal slow exposure of moving colord light. It would work if you put translucent filter over lens, but it is nst necessary use colored filter to tint liught. process.
    The question is why waste the film?
