GLASSWARP - Photography Experiments

Eugene Tumusiime is a London-based photographer, and during round 3 of lockdown, Eugene produced a self-initiated project called GLASSWARP. With a Samsung Galaxy S9, Eugene shot Christmas lights as they were bent, split and warped into different psychedelic patterns by different drinking glasses and a stapler. 

“I always use Christmas to do experiments with lights at home, and in 2017, I wanted to get a glass prism so bad that I tried to shoot my lights with my phone and a pint glass as a prism. It worked out. And I have a lot of glass at home.”

Here are 10 images, the full project features explanations of the different glass effects and a deconstruction of my post-processing workflow.
