Optical Illusion


Be like water. Show others their reflection with coolness.Despite seeming specialised, most of us have taken a snapshot of refracted light at some point. Refracted light can be visible in photos taken through curved glass, water, or a rainbow. Light bends when it hits a lens (or another medium). When light hits a curved or sloped surface between your camera and main subject, refraction occurs.

Beads of life :  Art water droplet.

Smartie bubbles : Pictures That Reveal The Truth.

Photographers use things to bend light and create spectacular photographs. Marbles, lens balls, and drinking glasses are wonderful refractors. Water reverses images in drinking glasses, which can be fascinating. An empty glass of water will still refract light, but it will seem twisted rather than inverted.

Incredible :  Only in still waters do things reflect undistorted.

Backlight :  just a glass of water.  

Focus on the glass object and choose an aperture to blur the background. Glass objects should be halfway between camera and background. Use a telephoto or portrait lens with an F2.8–F5.6 aperture. If you’re using a macro lens, this will be F8 or F11. Move the camera and glass toward or away from the background. Keep the findings even if they’re unclear on the camera screen.Refracted light creates pictures in water-filled glasses. You need water, a background, and a glass (a wine glass works great because it tends to be a better glass). In a well-lit environment is preferable, however flash photography is allowed. If you fill your glass halfway and place it in front of the background, you’ll see that the background is upside down. 

Rifrazione :  The water is always deeper than what it reflects.

Colour Meanings : Multiple Refractions.

The glass’s backdrop should be curved where there’s no water. Two-colour A4 paper makes a fun checkered design. Move your subject, backdrop, and camera until you’re satisfied. Close the glass to the camera to invert water backdrops (please see the below image). You can get great results by analysing and adjusting an image.
