Bending and Refracting Light

I’ve made it a mission this long weekend to play with some refractography. That is the bending of light through an object, and capturing the abstract patterns that it makes via a lensless camera.

I have alot of respect for the guys who are creating in this genre of photography, as it’s far more complex than it looks.

The abstract patterns that it creates are totally mesmerising. It’s like staring at clouds and seeing all sorts of patterns and shapes in them 😀

Here is a look at what I managed to produce:
