“NYC Prism” Photo Project

Lets face it the New York City landscape shot has been done to death, so it’s unusual to see a series of images that stands out from the crowd.

New York photographer Allen Skyy Enriquez created the splicing effect in these images not with editing but by holding a prism in front of the lens to merge two views of each location into one shot.

6-inch glass prism held in front of the camera lens, and then slowly moved around and adjusted until a desired look is achieved.

Enriquez described the benefits of the technique, “What you see through the viewfinder when shooting through an object that bends light can often yield completely unexpected results when loaded onto a screen.”
