mind bending :)

I don't know if you remember the old animations from the Atari 1040st.. and the Amiga? I have been trying to dupe some shots similar to those old animations.. mirror balls, refraction, distortion, etc! Finding it to be more difficult than I thought it would be! :)
 
I am tripping balls, bro.
 
Thank you, Derrel! Had fun shooting these!

Thanks, LS! Lighting was just a SB-900 on a 8x8" lastolite softbox at 45 degrees behind and above on #2 and #3.... 90 degrees to the side and about 60 degrees above on #1. Large "crystal" ball on checkered cloth. Manual, ISO 100, F8 to F16, 1/250 on shutter. Oh.. Pocket Wizards for the flash! :)

Pretty damn awesome the way that came out.
A crystal ball huh?
Creative my friend.
 
Just trying to get something a little different! :)
 
I prefer the second one.

The first I keep trying to see as symmetrical, but because it isn't perfectly, it kinda of breaks the image. That was a finicky shot to go for, small angle to the left or right can break the image.

As for the third, There is too much of a contrast between the light and dark. The dark just fills up the image too much.

But the second one I really dig. Is there any way to smooth out the checkered texture in the far left?

Do you mean on the cloth... where there was a slight rise that I didn't notice while shooting? I could "Pshop" it.. or reshoot it... that would be all!
