7 ideas for creative lens ball photography

At COOPH, we are always up for trying out new and interesting styles of photography. Recently we picked up a lens ball, an awesome crystal sphere that allows you to take refraction photos that reveal the background in the ball. As well as having fun, we wanted to bring you some cool tips on what you can shoot with your lens ball. So, watch all 7 tips, enjoy the video and make sure to try it out for yourself and share your results with us on the links below, or tag @thecooph and #coophshoutout on Instagram for a chance to be featured in our stories. We can’t wait to see your photos!
