Special Effects

Sherlock

My grandson came over the other day while I had my camera on a tripod, trying to take pictures of a forgettable table object.  He expressed some interest in how a camera worked.  To explain how the shutter worked, I let him look into the lens and snap pictures at various apertures so he could see the different size openings when the shutter is released.  He started with f2.8 and noticed the big “hole” open up in the enter of the lens when he pressed the shutter release.  Then he noticed the “hole” get smaller as he worked his way up to f16 and just a pin hole at f32. 

I was pleasantly surprised to see that some of the shots were in focus, and  began to experiment with some post-processing software that can get as wild as you want.  The two photos on this page came out of that experiment.  I don’t remember what table object had my original interest, but sure was glad he came over and gave me something to work with.  I had fun applying special effects to my grandson’s eyeballs, and he got a kick out of being part of it.
