Photographic glasses are a unique way to enhance the visual clarity of any image. Their specialty is in enhancing the colors and the depth of field. Because of their specialty, they are much more expensive than standard optical glasses. However, they are also more highly prized for their aesthetic and special effects capabilities. A wide variety of crystal photo glasses can be found on the market.
Crystal Photo Blocking Lasers Blocking filters uses a series of lasers to convert light into a different energy state. To do this, they combine a solid state excimer laser with an ion implanted in the surface of the crystal. By blocking the energy that causes light to split, the laser photo block lets in other light. This allows the photographer to control the brightness and colors of the image.
Crystal Photo Engraving The engraving of a crystal photo does not use the common etching techniques that are used in standard photo developing processes. Instead, the crystal photo is etched directly onto the surface of a standard glass plate. This process is not only highly technical, but also time consuming and painstaking. In traditional engraving, a jeweler would grind away at the surface of the glass plate in order to carve out the required patterns. In the case of crystal photo engraving, the crystal is simply engraved at a single, high-speed operation.
Crystal Photo Books Engraving is the process of using a laser to create a highly detailed image. There are various methods in which to etch a crystal photo block. In this method, the photo block is placed inside an air-tight chamber. A laser source is then used to emit a short burst of light. This engraving process causes the light to split apart into photons, which are then reflected to the crystal photo block. The exact patterns that you want etched onto the photo gift item will be determined by the size and shape of the crystal photo block.
Standard Photo Engraving Most standard photography processes involve printing a black and white photo onto regular paper. Standard photo engraving methods do not utilize a special type of laser light to produce the engraving patterns. Instead, a standard photo block is used, which is then illuminated with a special type of light that is invisible to the eye. The light shines upon the crystal photo block, which then imprints its design upon the block’s surface.
Optical Glass Crystal photo blocks can also be engraved with images through the use of an optical glass engraving machine. An optic glass engraver works by projecting an image onto a glass plate. After the image is projected onto the glass plate, it is up to the engraver to control the speed of the light so that the patterns are evenly etched onto the glass plate.
