Artist's Description

Another experimental shot using a plasma globe (from my school) and a 1 second shutter speed.

This shot was achieved by turning the plasma globe onto sensitive and placing my open palm on the top of it. On sensitive the plasma globe will only react to vibrations.

I had seen so many plasma globe shots so I couldn’t work out how to be original so I experimented.

With my palm on top of the globe the plasma rays are directed to one spot. This gave me a chance to get the ray in focus on the lens first. Then turned the lights out (torch to help find my way) and with the camera already focussed and my palm on the top I opened the shutter for 1 second with an F/3.5 and tapped the desk beside it to get the one plasma ray for as short as possible time.

This gave the effect you’re seeing here.

Camera: Olympus E30
Lens: Zuiko 14-54mm II lens
Shutter: 1 second
F/3.5
