Slinky Art

Posted: January 20, 2015 in Uncategorized

The Slinky has been around since I was a kid, and it’s a fun simple toy to play with, but also a great subject if you want to create some abstract art. I used the natural light available, and the original image came out as more of a black and white, but I used the “Bi Color User Defined” filter in Nik Software’s Color Efex Pro 4. F/stop at f/8.

    Love what you have done. I have used a slinky for close up work previously but with so so results. I never thought to use the filters in software. Another good subject to photograph is a cheese grater. The reflective surface shines with different colors of light and place some material, colored paper, etc. underneath to add color through the holes.
