Three Cheap Shots

We are trying to improve our camera skills during the holidays. Recently, we experimented with cross-polarization using two lens filters (Cross-Polarized Lime) and liked the results, so we wanted to try other experiments. We bought a sheet of polarized film about the size of a sheet of paper and placed it on an old light table we previously used to review slides and negatives (a.k.a. prehistoric pre-digital images). The cheapest possible clear plastic “silverware” was placed on the polarized film in different arrangements. Then, we rotated the polarization filter on the camera so that everything in the frame except the silverware was black.  Here are three of our results.

These photos were taken on November 25, 2017. Specs are:

Canon 100D, ISO 100, f/16, between 0.4 and 0.6 seconds, focal length 24 mm.
