Soratama Lens for iPhone

Jay April 23, 2012 Mobile Photography 4 Comments

Guys I stumbled into this very interesting lens created by Mr. Zenji Uehara. It is called Soratama. 

Soratama” is the photography technique which Zenji Uehara devised. ”Sora” means aerial. “tama” means ball. Take pictures using the transparent ball. A fantastic picture reflected to the transparent ball which appears on the midair can be taken.



Soratama is sold with Maminka. It is the thing which is glued to an acrylic ball to the acrylic board. I think you will have to set it up like this

Then you can start shooting cute pictures like these :

    So that’s how Kkmi did the photo she submitted in the contest! I always wondered how she did that. Is it hard to attach the lens to iphone?
