Spice Up Your Photography Experiments with Homemade Holograms

If you’re looking for an interesting way to spice up your experimental photography a bit, Shanks FX has a little video you might find interesting. Showing off various methods of how to create holograms — or at least give the illusion of a hologram — Shanks uses glass, mirrors, fog, mist, steam and a projector to bring 2D images to life in a 3D world.

Many of the results shown in the video are very impressive, and could definitely be used to add a unique element to your photo work. Give the six minute video a watch, and if you end up creating a series of photos using these ideas, be sure to share it in the comments down below!

Inspired by that project, photographer Andy Leach recently used the animation for a shoot of his own: he recreated Jernigan’s body as a hologram.
