Have you ever seen an interesting photo of a clear globe and wondered how to create such an image? This article will give you a few tips on how to take crystal ball photos.
You can use a crystal ball to get a fisheye effect without the expense of buying a fisheye lens.
One of the ideas I picked up from another blog on photography suggested that you’ll get interesting results if you include a fence in your photo.
In the photo above, I set up an old tripod with a black cloth on top and carefully balanced the ball upon it. I took the shot from a deck with a roof, close to steps that lead down into my backyard. I rotated the image 180 degrees to have the steps appear upright in the final image.
