Photography 101 – Day 17: Glass

Today we experiment with glass. That is almost ironic because camera lenses are made from a series of specially curved glass positioned in such a manner that amplifies and clarifies light as it passes through the lenses.

What happens to an image if view through additional glass or even plastic?

17a IMG_2487Shooting the image through a clear plastic water bottle certainly adds a bit of mystery to the image. And since the bottle was full of water, light streaks are visible as my iPhone captured this distorted image.  I always have a water bottle with me when I am out and about.

17b IMG_2489Just in case you are curious, this is the image I captured through a water bottle.

The distorted image reminded me of a Bible passage –

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.  1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV

Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
