‘Life through a Marble’ is a stunningly beautiful set of photographs by 16-year-old Cabe26 from New Jersey.
Using his Canon DSLR camera, Cabe26 takes captivating photos while focusing on a small glass sphere held up to his surrounding environment. The results are breathtaking! Through tiny glass marbles, the ting world are flipped, magnified and skewed.
Here is Caleb describe how to create those magical scenes:
Equipped with the extension tube, the lens enables him to get extremely close to the marble, and to focus on just what is inside the marble. After taking the original picture, he makes some Photoshopping, which involves flipping the entire image 180 degrees because the image that you are seeing in the marble is actually a refraction, so it is upside down. In addition to the rotation, he also does slight color, contrast, light, etc. edits until he is satisfied with the image.
