This week I teamed up with Fractals who create some beautiful light prisms that were very fun to use.

Using the fractals added a whole new dynamic to my shoots. I was able to add neon signs that were behind me in to the shot in front of me. My favourite prism was the thicker one, that's the one that bounced around images and lights from behind you. Also the one with a clear centre and the distorted edges was quite cool too, with that one I could create crazy dreamscapes with the subject of the photo in focus. The other one is like an extreme fractal effect and I wasn't able to really get anything with my style on my first shoot out, but I'm sure I could find some use for it in the future. I would definitely like to use these for portraiture and I'm excited to see how they can take my work to the next level. The quality of the glass was also fantastic and I do highly recommend them, very fun to use and you're sure to get some decent results.


And, as a friend of mine said, who is a lot better with words than I am, "Beautiful! It centralises to the people without making it only about them but the vibrancy of the night. It's so alive" So shout out to wordsmith Thandeka.
