A few weeks ago I published a blog about photographing San Francisco through a homemade prism. I’ve become pretty attached to this thing and am now scheming on how I can photograph ever major city I visit through this prism (if it was only easier to transport).
We went to Las Vegas in March and had the opportunity to walk through strip with prism in hand (I’m glad my family doesn’t get too embarrassed by my obsessions). For more information about how to photograph with a prism, see my previous post.
This time I honed my technique by focusing on three things:
- Finding a strong subject to be prominent in the “collage”
- Moving the apex point of the prism to locations other than the bottom
- Zooming in to reduce the number of prism triangles in the composition
