Of his retina-bothering Wicked Spyder III 3 Arctic and Krypton galaxy laser enhanced campfire, Tim Roman sez:

We created an awesome three dimensional starfield using the krypton with the star lens, and the Arctic laser with the perpendicular plane lens. We shot these into a campfire and people came from all of the nearby campsites just to have a look!

And staggered away blinded and screaming, bless ’em.


Hefting and peering through a high-end camera lens, you get a sense of the craft, the precision engineering, and the thoughtful design that went into it. But look at it in cross-section, as with this photo a neatly bisected Leica Tri-Elmar-M 28-35-50mm lens and the hellish, gorgeous complexity is revealed in a visceral way: “These were actually made by Leica students as a graduation project and boxed as a ‘cutaway model’ of the lens.”
