Microwave Photographing, huh? Ok, I heard about someone using this method and just had to try it out for myself.
Although one of the important factors in photographing is the lighting. If your microwave is set in a spot where the lighting is effective, I guess this method would work.
It is not one that I would recommend, but it is out there and so I thought I would share what I have experienced with this method. Actually my piece didn't come out too bad.
Supplies needed:Microwave ovenDigital CameraBackground clothFused glass piece
First start with a clean microwave. Place your background cloth inside and arrange your glass piece. You will need to shoot your photo with the door open.
When using your microwave to take photos, you will need lighting. Some microwaves have a light that comes on when the door is open and this lighting is adequate for the photo. If you don't have a light in your microwave, then you will need to adjust your microwave so that you are getting outside lighting, or use a small lamp to illuminate your glass.
Don't use the flash on your camera. Ok, I used a flash on mine. I just couldn't get the lighting to work the way I wanted it to, and I don't have a light inside my microwave.
Try using your microwave to take some photos. What the heck, it's worth a try!
