Great balls of fire..

 

Capturing reflection images using the Lensball hasn't been as easy as I thought it would be, any tips? I'm pretty sure once I get the hang of it it is going to be excellent fun but so far... in the shot below taken a few weeks ago at the Spring festival in Kings Park I found a nice little nook in a tree stump in amongst the wildflowers to sit the ball thinking I could take my time to compose the shot, within seconds I had almost started a fire! It was a warm day but blimey it started smoking almost at one, had to make sure I doused it with my water bottle!

Here at the Araluen Botanic Park Tulip Festival my sister held the ball while I snapped, really fast because it almost burnt her hand. So I'm guessing the best way to use it in warm weather, and it's only going to get hotter here, is by using a tripod.. I can see so much potential, has anyone got any better ideas for me.. please :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  1. ...this is a work in progress for me. I just bought a holder with a suction cup like in the first image, it's been a great help.

  6. I've read that you don't hold them when it's hot but I didn't know they could start a fire. Your shots came out super great, I love the tulip one too.

  7. Interesting post. I have got one on my wish list but so far the hint has not worked. Maybe we do not get as hot here as you generally! Keep safe and don't burn yourself!! Diane

  15. The more you try the better it will become. The position between heaven and earth plays also an important role but I like the attempts.

  26. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
