Yep, I'm bored! Same setup as the egg (more or less).
Wow, that's pretty cool!! I never would have thought to do that!! :thumbsup:
yeah what he said. As usual Jim, great photos.
Thank you all, I am humbled that you like my feeble efforts.
Cool! I like the 2nd one better, softer lighting and those orbs are just so cool looking in that one
Way to keep at it! I do not like the specular highlights in the first frame. The second shot is much stronger.
Yeah, I forgot to widen the beam on the flashlight, so it blew out the highlights.
I'm gonna work on a stand that's a bit more permanent using a piece of ABS pipe that uses a lightbulb instead of the flashlight.
Add a rheostat to control the light level and vary the size of the hole and I should be able to get just what I want. I hope.
How did you do that? Shine a flashlight onto it and BAM photo? If so *grabs flashlight* I wanna try lol
if not.. how? Thats a really cool looking thing in the 2nd picture there.
Flashlight shining up through a hole in a box that the jar is sitting in. Basically, that's it. I used the bathroom, as that's the only room in the house with no windows in it.
Thanks, I'm glad you like it.
Your rheostat idea sounds brilliant. keep in mind that you should have a powerful bulb. As far as color temp goes, I think tungsten is easier to deal with than florescent. Experiment with screens and diffusion over the light source. I do not have to say "never forget the trusty bounce".
