See, mobiles are bad for your health. There's all sort of junk coming out of that one! :shock:



Very good shot Philly. What was the light source?

~It's really pretty simple to do. I set my camera on a tripod and put the cellphone on the table. I set the camera to M mode and set the shutter speed, and aperature. I set the aperature to4.5 and the shutter speed to 10 seconds. I then used the manual focus to focus while the lights wereon. The 2 second self timer was then put on. The lights were all off and the room was completely dark! I pressed the shutter button to take the picture. I then took a small LED like light, any small light should work, and waved it around in different patterns above the phone. Don't worry about your hands getting in the picture, mine were and they did not show up. It took quite a few shots, but this is the best I got. Any reflective/metal like objects should work. This was taken with a G5. Hope this gives you a good idea of what I did.~
