It always helps to try and add new tricks to your arsenal - as far as I know, Dana Maltby aka TCB started using this trick in his photography where he would put a prism or kaleidoscope in front of the lens, lit from behind, then switched focus mid-exposure and continued lighting the environment to create some very interesting images.

For example, this stick figure is about the size of a quarter:

Dime for reference - I'm liking the reflections here.
