This is my first ever attempt at creating a dome of light… and I am thrilled with the outcome…

Canon 450D with Canon 18-55mm IS lense. f18, ISO100, 20 seconds, 55mm focal length.
AS IS… straight from the camera…

    Great shot Keith! How did you do that?

  • Thanks heaps Carol… The best way to describe how I did it is to suggest you google “creating a light dome”… There are many examples and explanations on the net.. and, might I say, some brilliant photos of this technique… I was amazed when it first caught my attention 3 days ago…

    Very clever and beautifully captured work my friend!!! I love the strong vibrant colours. I get the sense of “flickering strobes” ~ lol….(maybe just my head this morning) …
    Congratulations on your well deserved features with this….

  • Thank you very much my dear friend… I have to say, after creating this image, my mind is going a hundred miles an hour at the possibilities…

    It’s cool and makes me wonder how you did this…what was happening during those 20 seconds, eh mate!

  • Hey mate… if you Google creating a light dome – all will be revealed… it really is quite simple…

  • And… The challenge is down… Have a go at it.. it is a bit of fun…
