Reflections in a Sunflower — Lensball Playtime #8

Hi all 😃 I was playing with lensy the other day with a sunflower thinking it may be an interesting subject for a lensball, with a few odd effects. One thing I learnt is that shooting objects that are dark, whilst outdoors is problematic with unwanted light reflection, particularly sky & clouds; they often hide the subject.

In this first shot, I was trying to get the sunflower to fill the lensball, but the dark interior of the sunflower turned it into an almost perfect mirror 😲 This is the extreme end of the scale with light reflection.

The next 2 shots, although not as extreme both have the same effect.

These next shots were me trying to get a macro shot of the sunflower petals, through the lensball; blame Bushboy 🤣 They came out with quite a dreamlike affect which I think are quite good 😎

I moved indoors where I had greater control of the light & was able to get more satisfactory results (although, that pesky guy with the camera had to get in the last shot 😂).
