Diffused Roses and Plastic Bags

As promised, some more playing around with DIY tricks and lighting.

My dad bought my mom some cute miniature roses for her birthday last weekend, and they were the first subjects for this experiment.

In addition to the DIY “light box” trick with the paper and window, I also grabbed a ziplock back from the kitchen and ripped it at the bottom, stuck my lens in it, and used it as a sort of light diffuser/lens flare.

I’ve used this trick before with other objects as well. You can use pretty much anything, generally translucent items work best. Stick them partially in front of the lens, and you get all kinds of sweet lens flare effects.
