    These are really good dude.

    Here's a couple of examples of mine, not as good as yours but not done as a project but more of a practice, and they're all unedited :)

    These are really good! what camera are you using? because thats the main flaw in my work my camera is over 6 years old. Also what lights did you use they look nice I used a red LED strapped to a 9volt battery.

    And really the editing I did was not much I only increased the contrast and changed the hue and saturation levels to get the desired effects.

    I used a Nikon D3000 for these. Was pretty lucky I managed to get a deal on eBay where I got that and loads of extras for about £380.
    And tbh, we got some LED balloons for my brothers birthday, so we just took them out of there and used them, dead cheap and worked really well.

    But yours are really good, what camera do you use?

    Panasonic DMC-FZ5 I got it from my dad for 6th grade step-up for some reason...I also use Photoshop elements.
    - gemie89 February 1, 2011, 2:28 pm
    Ahh right, well I only started my course in September so yeah lol. I use Photoshop CS5, but I don't know how to use everything properly on it yet.

    You can also use this same technique with the low shutter speed to make water look like silk. I have yet to try it tho.
    - gemie89 February 6, 2011, 10:27 am
    I've done it before, not the best, but is this the kind of effect you mean? I think this shutter speed was about 2 or 3 seconds...
    - SuDoku February 6, 2011, 10:34 am
    Yeah, If you were to use the same setup on a running steam it would look really cool

    Works really well with fire aswell (I was so productive on my holiday) ;)

    I changed the hue and saturation on Photoshop elements. :) I originally used a red LED to make the photos.

    Oh. I grant you +3!
