Photography Crystal Ball

I'm thinking of getting one of these crystal balls to mess around with when I take photos. Have any of you got one? I could do with some advice as to what size is best and how to use them. For those of you who don't know what I'm on about here is a cracking pic taken with one.

That's a lovely picture, Roxy.
Love the way the light shines through the ball.

Re: Photography Crystal Ball

Here's a better result with a crystal ball. Use a big aperture to blur the background subject. The pic in the ball with appear upside down, rotate the whole thing.

Re: Photography Crystal Ball

That should make some interesting photos. I bought this glass pyramid a while ago. Not with photography in mind but it could be worth an experiment or two..



This crystal ball effect was done digitally..
