The toys inspire us to the search of the special places for outdoor pictures and creation of our own micro worlds. Would you like to make a shot of lightning without looking through the window? Is it possible to shoot a jellyfish without water and light? That’s what we are going to do!
This lightning is made without any effect, light painting or digital collage. This is a hologram made with the help of plastic and smartphone. 🙂 After watching several great YouTube tutorials I tried to make a hologram and really enjoyed the result.
The recipe of the digital miracle
– graph paper
– a CD case
– glue / sticky tape
– a pen
– a smartphone
– a knife
First of all, we have to draw a small rhombus on the graph paper. Then we use this template to cut out 4 rhombus shapes with the plastic from the CD case. Tape all the plastic shapes together, place this projector over your smartphone and turn on one of special videos.
Using the hologram projector, you can shoot your characters with deep-sea creatures or butterflies. These optical ghosts are perfect for such themes as “Robotic science” or “Alien adventures”. I chose the “Nature” and “Space” videos and was glad to see that this hologram looked realistic with mini- and micro figures.
As you can see, all the elements of the video are moving and you can play with different phases of the moon, jumping animals and growing flowers.
Thank you for your attention!
