    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?

    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?

    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!
