Personal Project | Refractographs

I've been away the past few weeks working on a personal project.  I came across the work of Australian Photographer and Visual Artist, Rob Turney and the gorgeous refractographs he created.  Rob had also produced the only informative tutorial I could find on the Internet, so I decided to give it a try.

I had to work in a completely dark space with no stray light and in my case, this required working well into the late night hours.  I found this project to be incredibly challenging, since these are shot without a lens on the camera.  My biggest hurdle was positioning the piece I wanted to refract to my liking.  No post production (editing) has been done to these images, they are straight out of camera.

Please feel free to check back, as I will be adding more and trying different techniques.

Wonderful work, Julia! I'm inspired to learn that technique, now.
