Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

HAS ANYONE DONE ANY PHOTOGRAPHY, USING A 100MM GLASS BALL / GLOBE ?
I HAVE RECENTLY, SEEN SOME VERY GOOD EFFECTS USING ONE OF THESE.
THINKING ABOUT GIVING IT A TRY.
IF ANYONE HAS ALREADY TRIED IT, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOUR RESULTS

Do you mean something like this which I produced just over a year ago.

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

DAVE, THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY. THAT IS ANOTHER WAY OF USING IT, WHICH I HAVE NOT SEEN BEFORE. THAT IS A GREAT SHOT DAVE, VERY CLEVER.
MOST OF THE SHOTS I HAVE SEEN SO FAR, THEY HAVE PLACED THE BALL NEARER TO THE CAMERA AND BASICALLY SHOOTING THROUGH THE BALL.
I HAVE SEEN WOODLAND SCENES, LANDSCAPES, COASTAL AND BEACH SCENES, THEY ARE VERY EFFECTIVE.
I THINK THERE COULD BE MANY WAYS IN WHICH THIS COULD BE USED, I AM CERTAINLY GOING TO GIVE IT A TRY.

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

Hi Woody, I have looked in my archives but seem to have deleted my globe images.
They were taken through a glass ball with bubbles inside and gave some interesting abstracts, there were coloured haloes and interesting distortions.
I still have the ball, I use it as a paperweight these days.
Give it a go Woody, lets see what you come up with.
Charles.

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

CHARLES, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR REPLY. WHAT A SHAME, YOU NO LONGER HAVE YOUR GLOBE IMAGES, I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO SEE THEM.

I IMAGINE THE EFFECTS YOU COULD GET USING BUBBLES WERE ENDLESS, THIS IS AGAIN SOMETHING I HAD NOT THOUGHT OF USING, SO ANOTHER GOOD IDEA.

THIS IS ONLY SOMETHING THAT I HAVE RECENTLY COME ACROSS AND I HAVE BECOME FASCINATED WITH WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED.

SO I WILL CERTAINLY BE LOOKING FOR INTERESTING SUBJECTS FOR THIS

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

Having drawn my attention to the globe, at a club event yesterday I spoke to the owner. He mentioned that the club's keenest photographer had recently quizzed him about the globe and has now bought two. I wonder if we are going to have a period of globe pictures so have ordered one myself. In club competitions and international salons such things can suddenly become popular but quickly go out of favour out as everyone has a go. I will try to get in quickly.

I have produced other images with spheres but these were all produced in Photoshop. An interesting topic.

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

The glass ball was delivered yesterday so tried a shot in my garden today. I will take a while to get to grips with this and capture some really good shots.

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

Hey Woody...

First off, it's a 120mm K9 Crystal Sphere.. its a heavy not so little thing..

I processed it as HDR. 5 exposures, processed in NIK HDR Efex 2. Preset is a custom one I've developed over the years of doing sunsets. After that was done, I bump clarity in lightroom, a bit of vibrance and dehaze.. Fairly hard sharpening in LR, with a strong mask so as to not affect the softer areas of the image..


Then followed up by editing in Photoshop, using content aware fill to remove my hand..

pretty standard fare for one of my sunset shots..(minus the hand removal)


I intend to built a tripod stand for this sphere. Block of wood with screw insert to mount on tripod. Dimpled on top so the sphere cannot roll off.. painted bright green or yellow so it's easy to select and do content aware fill on..

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

Okay, so I've got the bug bad..


I ordered 1/4"-20 threaded brass inserts and am taking a chunk of oak, lathing it into a round and cupping the top so I can set the sphere on a light stand. I'm painting the top black so it doesn't show up in the sphere, and the rest of it some gaudy neon color so I can easily remove it in photoshop..

should be interesting

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

update. Design change on the stand..

the oak block is being made much smaller, and instead of cupping the top of the block, a quarter sized golf tee is being lathed, and added to it to act as the mount point for the sphere. I tested it with a small golf tee and it as TOO small but the idea is sound..


in the end, what this will allow me to do is use a gorillapod or light stand or camera tripod to mount the sphere on so it's not hand held. I'll be able to move around and not have to hand hold the sphere.. removal of the 'stand/adapter' in photoshop or lightroom will be pretty simple as it will be painted in a gaudy high contrast color..

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

here is tonight's shot. I didn't remove my hand this time because the horizon of the globe was obscured by my hand and removing it made it look strange. In a day or two my stand will be made..

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

Success! My sphere stand is built out of aged oak. I tested it for a couple cell phone shots and it didn’t fall off. I take it out tonight for a real world outing....

I grew impatient, my wood work was done and my brass inserts havent shown up yet, so I stopped by the local hardware store and purchased s steel T-Nut... V2 which will be smaller yet, will feature the brass hardware..

I also decided on matte black for the finish instead of neon colors. I decided too much chance of glowing colors interfering with my photo. Also the thing is so small that removing it is going to be simple compared to my hand...












yeah look at this, a test shot.. The black stand is barely noticeable in the shot and completely easy to mask out and do a content aware fill..

Re: Using a 100mm glass ball / globe

Hi Loyd,, I have followed along, like your holder/stand you made. I have a couple different sized vacuum tubes and a chrome dome light where the screw broke off right around the base. I was looking for a 2 inch clear glass ball I have. As the rest like your sunsets, me too.
