One of the main problem areas for many digital photographers is getting a print
that is reasonably close to what you see on screen. Assuming that you have a
calibrated display (and if you don't, stop reading this article and profile

Imagine yourself walking into a room where there are numerous objects covered with small mirrors. The mirrors follow the form and shape of the objects. The walls of the room have a slot that goes continuously around the entire room. Behind the slot is a light that shines into the room and that travels the entire distance, from wall to wall. As the light travels it passes through numerous color filters built into the slot. The light reflects off the mirror facets on the objects. You can also move throughout the room and observe the objects and the light by standing with the light coming in over your shoulder, from the side or even standing behind the objects as the light hits them.

Lens Effects

Light And Lenses, Plus A Unique Point Of View

by Jim Zuckerman

Lenses don’t interpret the world as our eyes do. The way light interacts with glass and with the metal blades of a lens aperture is different than how it interacts with our eyes, and it’s noteworthy to mention some of the effects thatc...
