    It all started with a fourescent work light, a couple of LED flashlights, a black bowl of water, and one of those thingys you use to suck the boogers from a baby's nose(I dont know what its called). Over 1000 shots later I still havent got it right. But I think I did ok considering experience and equipment. I just cant seem to get the focus right. I tried about everything. I think...... Heres a few.

    hehe, good start... looks like you're missing the focus a bit. Maybe try manual?

    An excellent use for those baby boogar suckers. :lol:

    I was using manual focus. I floated a piece of packing styrofoam and tried focusing at different hieghts on it to maybe find a sweet spot. I'm going to maybe try some more tonight.

    I like the first one cause it actually looks to me like an explosion with blue flames

    I think the fifth shot is probably my favorite, but they're ALL nice!
