So, here’s an example of what I’ve been doing with my time as of late. Divide the above photo in half and cock your head to the side. That’s what the original photo looked like. Then I went into Photoshop, mirrored the image and, voila. Is it an owl? A koala? Ewok? You decide.
I have thousands of interior kaleidoscope images. Now I’ve been going through them and using this technique to change things up. I’ve had some pretty unexpected results, many of which I could never show (because they’re a little weird). But I’ll share two here and get back to my studio. I won’t give up pushing the boundaries of what can be done artistically with a camera, lens and a high quality scope.
Both photos are taken with kaleidoscopes created by David Kalish.
