First real post

Ok, finally... last night I built a rig to help capture a photo that I've been trying to get for about 2 weeks now involving a custom bokeh filter, macro tubes, fibre optics, the Earth and my wife Anna's eye. What is all this about you say? And when can I see the image? Not telling... yet. But here's a shot of what I made from masking tape, lego and blu-tack to assist in the process:

I promise to show the photo when it's in the clear... ;-)

  1. By hook or by crook, I'll be first in this book!
    (That's what we used to write in someone's autograph book if we were the first to use it).

    Julian, I have bad news for you. It looks from the picture that you are trying to capture the light from your flash and to slow it down by making it go round some corners before it gets somewhere. Light doesn't slow down! In fact, according to my understanding of the theory of relativity either the light will get there before you press the shutter or your camera will get extremely heavy. Either way, good luck. You're going to need it.
    Love, Pa
