    Glad you liked them. The first was a 30 second exposure with us both firing off our SB's with the flash button. Kinda like a SB shootout.
     
  5. SB Shoot-out, sounds fun, iv just bought a really cheap EV Blitz, which im going to modify with a push button to trgger whenever I want, because I dont think its compatible with my camera, or can be triggered manually anyway.
    But either way, fun with light is easy, and...FUN!
     
  6. great thread

  7. All of these were taken before I bought my inexpensive strobes. All exposures are approximately thirty seconds.

    This first one was lit with projector bulbs (Studio in a Box) and a flashlight to bring out areas that the lights couldn't illuminate enough, such as the bow string. The blue hightlight at the tip of the arrow was painted on by the TV, which was peeking around the backdrop. This was my first project with my D40x - two days after I got it.

    Lit with a MiniMag flashlight, aimed through the side of the crystal tray. I was swinging the light side to side above the tray, and then I'd do the same from two angles at the bottom of the image. Which is how I got the light beams to cross. One of the coins doesn't belong.

    The same tray, inverted and lit from the side with an ultraviolet rock-hound flashlight.

    Ah yes, I remember that night well... I refer to it as "my sendoff".

    Here's my buddy Tim:
