I finally received my XTi but I didn't have time to play with it until after my classes. So I'm in my basement being creative and capturing anything interesting! Using an XTi kit lens(EF-S 18mm-55mm ).Criticism would be nice. Such as how I'm supposed to focus some of the pictures, or set exposure time. All these shots were shot in manual mode to the best of my ability. The green and blue lights are lasers I've built using a green laser diode and also a blu-ray diode ripped out of a ps3. A spider and its young in a corner of the room. focused on the little ones same, except focused on the mother pointed the laser directly on the spiders (Hope I didn't hurt them, the laser lights matches and pops balloons at over 20') bothering the neighborhood across the street really wish I had a macro lens Another one, pointed my flashlight on it(inova X03) Shot of the laser itself going through a diffraction grating. A Uranium-doped shattered glass marble(slightly radioactive, but not at all harmful!) Another focused on the blu-ray laser itself. Thanks for looking! Can't wait to take some daytime shots at the park tomorrow!
