View Full Version : Daughter and lightening ball

I wasn't sure where else to put these- so here they are. All comments are welcome. They're with a Canon 30D and a 50/1.8II, manual, f/1.8, Tv 30, Iso 200-400, handheld.

I know they're soft/noisy, but they were shot in a pitch-black room after all!

What do you think?

I think I have to buy a lightning ball :D Looks like you both had a bit of fun taking those shots

Cool shots :) Those balls do look very pretty with the light arcs :)

Plasma Balls as they are sometimes referred to are cool. I love them, I used to do all sorts of weird experiments with them. Nice set of images, although a little more light on your Daughters Face wouldn't hurt, maybe a small light just to bring her face out more?

Great shots. Well thought of. Agree with Andrew about bit more light on your daughters face.

LOL- I can stil her now...."Daddy, my nose is getting hot!"

I might pull the ball into the middle of the room away from the wall, and use some sort of small lamp to throw light on her.

Thanks all!

Well done

Love these images - I also agree with Andrew on lighting your daughter's face just a bit, not too much otherwise you will lose the mood of the images. :kewl:
