This is my final shoot, I hope :S. For this shoot i used a macro lens to try and make the fibres stand out. Here are some edits. I am going to name them again according to what i see. This way people might see the image and get confused because it has no context, then I give them a title which actually has nothing to do with the theme it’s just what i see in the shapes. This changes the whole reading of the image. Forcing the viewer to see through my eyes.
This time I wanted to experiment with the scarves some more, I found out if you put the crystal right next to the scarf you get beautiful results, rather then holding the crystal far away like I was doing previously.
Here is a video I made that shows you how turning the crystal alters the light dispersion…
(this video refers to the last process, scroll down to see how I came to this)
I started out by putting the crystal about 2 cm away from the projector light, then projecting the light behind the crystal, and taking images this didn’t work too well, the like dispersions were taken over by the direct light of the projector, it is also hard to decipher the difference between whats a pattern on the scarf and whats light, maybe this technique would work well on a white scarf…
I noticed pretty patterns the crystal created when I was holding it in my hand close the wall and far away from the light, i started taking pictures without the fabric so I could compare the difference after…
This is a video attempting to capture the beauty and colour of the light dispersion i have been creating, however the colours haven’t come out too well, maybe instead of using a hand cam i should use a camera that gives me power over shutter speed and aperture. But here it is anyway. Enjoy.
So I wanted to do some closer up shots, so i went infront of the projector, so it was projector, diamond then me, and i photographed the light dispersion on the paper the diamond was on. These are the most visually appealing images and it was easier to focus on the shapes.

This was an imade i took with 3 different lights…
Strong White Light
Projector Standby Light
The Standby light is the nicest, this will be the lighting technique i take forward, rather then a green tinge it has a blue one.
