Glass Globe Photography Try 1

A little while back I was given, thanks Chris, a pair of clear glass globes for use with my camera. I’ve seen photos done with these a few times in the past but never tried using one myself. Now I can . . .

Yesterday we took a trip (never had to go into a place or interact with a human so social distancing was maintained) to get away from town for an afternoon. Since we live in the mountains there’s always a nice drive to be had.

The photos were all shot with a Panasonic FZ1000.

I’ve found a number of things I’ll have to try differently.

Beginning with a macro lens . . . which I have to use with a different camera seeing as the FZ1000 does not have a removable lens. But I do have a Pentax that I can use which does take different lenses and I do have a macro / fish-eye for that.

I also found that trying to adjust focus on a bright sunny day without a shade hood is nearly impossible so I have to do something about that.

I’m going to try working out how to use a video camera with them.
