Oh, I have no doubt! It's like anything pretty much: if it was easy everybody'd be doing it. The more I tinker the more I realize that it is, in fact, harder than it looks, but easier with practice, but mostly fun when it turns out well. :)

Having major brain cramp: is this how the scene looked through the bulb or is this a composite? Please explain!

The project started when I saw an image shot through a glass ball, much like Bob's but not having one on hand I looked for something else.

I found a big clear bulb and used some tools to remove the bottom part of the metal base. I removed the filament, used a file on the rough edges and cleaned inside. The hardest part of the project was learning how to hang it and keep it from swinging. I used black thread and hung the bulb from a tension line.

To answer your question, it's a single shot with very little editing. Tread the bulb, fill it with water, hang it, frame it, shoot it, and rotate it.

I like the bulb over the glass ball because it has a base, but I've seen some really cool images with both so it's a choice. I'd do it again! S-

Knowing how it was done is even cooler. I assumed it was a composite! :look:
