Our prisms are made with K9 optical glass. They are checked for clarity and imperfections during the manufacturing process. Our prisms are hand sanded and polished to our specific size requirements to maintain consistency and quality. Our prisms measure 6” (150mm) by 1.38” (35mm). Our prisms are slightly wider than the competition to make them easier to hold and use.
All of our prisms come in our padded satin lined Amlong Crystal box.
How does a prism create a rainbow?
When light moves from air into the glass of the prism, light refraction occurs. The design of the prism causes the light to change direction. A ray of light is made up of many wavelengths of light. Each wavelength passes through the prism with different resistance than the other light waves. The different wavelengths normally travel together but get dispersed passing through a prism and we can see them separately as a rainbow.
Prisms are not just for science class and fun light experiments either. Both amateur and professional photographers can use prisms to create interesting effects in their pictures. See below for more information on how to make a rainbow and the fractal lens effects you can create with our prism.
Show your kids a rainbow with light refraction
Use a white paper or canvas and tack it to a wall across a room from a sunny window or a flashlight if there are no windows available. Make sure the canvas or paper is flat and smooth. Hold your prism in front of the background. Make sure to catch the light from the window. If using a flashlight, hold the prism in your non-dominant hand and the flashlight in your dominant hand. Turn on the flashlight and hold the prism in the light. Continue to twist and turn your prism in the light source until a corner of the triangle falls into the light beam. Light should then refract through the prism and create a rainbow on your background.
Use your prism to create unique photography effects.
Looking for a photography prism for cool effects? Or maybe a unique gift for the photographer in your life? Look no further. Professional photographers with a top of the line camera and amateurs using cell phones for pictures can both use this device. You can achieve all sorts of different effects using our prisms with time and practice.
Set your camera on manual focus and hold the prism close to the lens in the area of the frame the effect is desired.
You can slowly move and rotate the prism to experiment with the different effects that can be created and how to achieve them.
TIP* A smaller aperture creates a smoother effect.
SAFETY TIP* Do not look through the eyepiece of your camera when using a prism. The light can be intense enough to simulate looking at the sun. Instead, use the live view on your digital camera.
Eventually, you will be able to create effects like below.
Over time you can use your prism to create all these photography effects and more.
Purchase this light refracting prism to create this cool Rainbow effect.
Create a rainbow effect in your photo using the light refraction technique below.
Turn one of the prism’s edges towards the camera.
Move and rotate until the rainbows appear.
TIP: If you take a picture through the prism, rainbows will appear along the borders of your image. Or you can simply angle the prism to cast a rainbow on your subject.
This optical glass lens can remove Unwanted Elements in your photo right out of the box.
Remove an unwanted element in your background using your new prism camera filter with the instructions below
Move the prism around your lens until the reflection, rainbow, or extra light hide the element.
Not only will your subject be the focus of your picture but you will have added a creative effect.
Purchase now to use this crystal for photograph to make a Kaleidoscope picture
This is how to get a kaleidoscope effect with your new photography prism
Place the prism so one of its bases faces the lens.
Find something to shoot.
Cover as much of the lens as possible for best results.
This photography prism effect can even create Mirror, Ghost and Dreamy images
You can get this cool effect with your new crystal light prism by using the steps below.
Place the prism on the lens and move until you can see the reflections.
Place the prism on different areas of the lens or change the orientation and angle to experiment further.
This effect can create doubles of your models or a partial reflection that can resemble water, glass reflections or even ghosts.
You can even try to catch reflections of surrounding objects instead of your subject to create interesting blending effects. All without using a computer to create the effect.
TIP: Create a dreamy effect by simply placing the prism across the center of the lens instead of the side.
