A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Is real life bumming you out? Does everything around you seem too random and organic?
Then go on a teleidoscope trip and bring back some pictures!
Using a cheap kids’ teleidoscope (a type of kaleidoscope that turns whatever you look at into a pattern) and a camera, you can enter a mind-bending geometric dreamscape and have the photos to prove it.
Now that otherwise regular ‘ol photo is a limitless sea of hexagons and triangles!
p.s. Heard of our pals Artsy Couture? They print and mount your snaps onto beautiful solid wood blocks called Gallery Blocks. We think you might like ‘em!
Why It’s Cool:
Pretty much everything looks cool through the end of a teleidoscope whether it’s your tv, your dog’s face, the pattern on your shirt or the words in a book, and having photos of all your unique fractal creations is endlessly fun.
Everyone, especially a photographer, should own a teleidoscope, you can find them at most toy stores or just do a quick search online on Amazon or eBay.
What You’ll Need:
STEP 1: Get a Teleidoscope
The most common teleidoscope is a cardboard tube about 8″ long with a glass marble at the end. For this demonstration we’re using an antique model made of wood and brass simply because we have one and it looks cool.
STEP 2: Choose Your Camera
Plus, anything bigger and you’d have trouble holding the camera and teleidoscope.
STEP 3: Line ‘em Up!
STEP 4: Fire Away!
Viewing lights creates awesome patterns as well as plants, faces and fabric.
