Thread: Wind Glass

  1. #1

    Default Wind Glass

    I tried to make optical illusions with a recent gift. I didn't do very well but I'll post the results anyway.
    If anyone has any good ideas please let me know.

    Maybe improve on the lighting and I was irritated that you could see the bottom of the glass in the front. Funny though

    Start by firing the sommelier!!!

    You should get rid of the rim on the smaller glass (you can't see the rim on the larger one) - maybe use rotorooting or a necrotizing filter or some such

    i'm trying to work out how you could introduce a very small person (ie younger than your daughter) and a very large person to emphasize the differences.

    In keeping with the magical illusion, it could be the same person standing either close or far away

    My thoughts:
    1. The shaking table only affected one glass. That would be strange if the 2 glasses were only next to each other.
    2. When pouring into the distant glass, the bottle looks smaller; and therefore the illusion is more easily lost. Could this affect of perspective (i.e. things look smaller further away) be lessened if the cam was further fro the table; and a longer lens was used?

    Thanks for your thoughts guys. I think I should have a glass of wine and think about it. But which glass should I use ?
