Spice Up Your Portraits With a Prism!

This is a technique that my whole family has enjoyed using! I found it through Jimmy Bui who in turn found it through Sam Hurd, the creator of the technique. All you do is hold the prism up to the lens and just turn it until you find something you like. Experiment and have fun!! You can purchase a prism on Amazon for about $15. I used a 6 inch long Amlong Prism. No 2 images will be the same!

These are portraits from our first day out playing with it. As soon as we got it in the mail we made our way out to the sunflower fields at Draper Wildlife Management. I cannot wait to try this technique out on an upcoming engagement shoot!

For these images I used the Nikon D3 paired with the Nikon 20mm f1.8, a Nikon sb600, and yongnuo flash triggers with a Gary Fong snoot.

Thanks for reading, and as always please contact me with any questions!
