Photoelasticity

A friend on mine introduced me today to the concept of Photo-elasticity.

Apparently it is a scientific method to study the tension points in plastics. It also makes very beautiful colorful images.

 

The set up:

Make the screen of your laptop white.

Put a plastic object in front of it.

Attach your polarized filter to your favorite lens.

Rotate it until the screen becomes black.

Press the shutter release button.

Enjoy.

 

Thank you Kat.
