    Looks good, but to me the glass looks way too out of focus and the guys beat red face looks really in focus, I think it should have been the other way around. Maybe go to 2.8?

    thanks Will, but i was actually focusing on his red face..lol
  4. I always thought that kind of art was amazing and I don't see how they can be so precise with something so pliable as hot glass.

    It looks like the guy is about to have a heart attack!!

    Amazing capture Nute! I really have to stop looking at your shots...I'm trying to hold off on spending more $ and you make it pretty darn difficult to do so with examples like that!

    The trick is correct temperature. Not so hot that the glass collapses, just hot enough the molecules will move. Plus, this glass is made to do this in hollow rods initially. Not to take away from what he's doing, but to put it in perspective. In my view, working with molten hunks of glass on the end of turning rods is a much more intricate and difficult process that glass trinket making. Though it is an art form, and not something you pick up overnight I am sure.
