Soul Gems by VelvetRedBullet Soul Gems by VelvetRedBullet
"Soul Gems"
18.08.2012

I was out walking, trying to do some still life photography in a different location so I took a few thing with me to experiment.

Now I'm a huge fan of the game Skyrim so I thought it was about time I did some *fanart* photography. I was completely experimenting here, and I'm not too sure if I like it or not, but what do you think?

A lot of *DA Famous* do this sort of thing and it works for them, not sure if it works for me.

But opinions would be awesome thanks

Second attempt at this style:

As an addict of that game (3rd time, Argonian Wizard!?) I loved it when I saw this. I like the fact you doing something just as technical but also more playful than your usual beautiful photography...
Do both! Please do some more, even if its just taking some great pics of mushrooms and calling them Blisterwort or Imp Stool! :D

Very pretty! I love the glowy look they have. I wondered if the picture might have something to do with The Elder Scrolls, when I saw the title. ;-) Haven't played Skyrim, but I know about soul gems from Morrowind & Oblivion. :-)
Lovely work!

Fluorite!

I spent six years looking at crystalline minerals through a polarizing microscope for several hours a week, my visual perception has never gone back to normal...

Mineralogical specimens are MUCH cheaper than identical items sold as "power crystals" and so forth in hippy shops!

Looks like Soul Gems shards... You know, the things you start running too to find out there just shards making them totally useless XD

Looks really nice anyway. They really look like they are glowing.
