My brother recently sent me a lens ball after his friend showed him some photos he had taken using one. I’ve always been intrigued by them and the kind of photos you can take with them but never really thought of getting one for myself. I was very excited when he told me I had one coming in the post (what a nice brother).
With lockdown it has taken a while to arrive but I also found it very tricky finding good subjects to test it out on while we were at home.
With the slight relaxation of the lockdown rules, we ventured out on a countryside walk for the first time since March early yesterday. While we have been very grateful to be safe at home, living in a top floor flat with a lively six-year-old hasn’t been without its challenges so it was fantastic to have a tiny bit of safe, socially distanced freedom. Freya absolutely loved being outside again.
As we walked, I quickly snapped a few photos. I’m still a bit confused about whether to turn them so they are the right way up.
I think it’s going to be a very interesting piece of kit to have in my camera bag.
Would you consider getting one or have you got one? Any tips you can pass on?
