Heya everyone! Took a whole bunch of fire pics today....was my first time trying!
Here's a bit of eye candy for y'all!
(Ok, a LOT!)
;-)

We've nicknamed the stone 'The Retina Burner'! Hehe! It's going to be set soon, so maybe a bit more fun before that time....I'll try to get closer shots and add them here over the weekend:)


EDIT: These are supposed to be thumbnails....really tiny ones.I am fixing this now....oh my loading time!
My server is gonna bust

HAHA!
Sorry guys!

EDIT 2: I took some out, but y'all don't seem to mind so many pics, so I'll leave them in unless my bandwidth crashes in the next while.




Some background on the stone:

Please excuse the dust....I should have cleaned it better first!

Rainbows!














Wheee!




Darker pic (shadow of me and the camera?)



A few colors together....














Merry Christmas!



Some white light....






Oranges....











Yellows....








Some more pretty stuff....!







Sparkle from a distance....



And last, some blurry pics that kinda looked cool! The camera was focusing on the light rather than the stone!

Heya thanks! I was doing it for ages....waiting for the sun to come out between clouds all day:D
I've taken my pics with two cameras. My more 'pro one' (a Canon PowerShot Pro 1) and my everyday use camera (a Canon PowerShot S3 IS). I think most of these ones were taking with the S3 IS!

I like that one too, it's got more pastel colors....hehe!

:) Thank you! I didn''t think it would show through the pics because of the wood table! Not bad though:)

Great camera eh!

Nope, I used manual, and then turned on the super macro mode....or the macro mode depending on the distance. Then I set it in the sun and did the focus thing as soon as I saw the glare. From there I would move slightly up or down or to the side to capture the different ends of the spectrum!

If you need any help just lemme know!
:)

StarSpun,

WOWZA!!!! I don''t think I''ve seen anyone capture the FIRE and RAINBOW as well you just did.
That diamond is kicking HOT HOT.
I can never capture the fire in my ring. I''d be happy if I can get one twinkle.
Oh well, maybe my rock just doesn''t have that FIREY personaliity.

Thanks for the firework show.
I really enjoyed it.

StarSpun, your pics are fabulous!! I didn''t realize your stone was an Isee2, mine is too. You''ve got to put some of these in the Fire thread! I''ll be bumping it up here in a bit, got some nice ones yesterday. It IS addicting taking these, isn''t it?


Your stone is just gorgeous.

OMG... where are my sunglasses!


Starspun! What a journey its been. These pix are just breathtaking too. I just love the green fire!!! I also have a bias towards Canon''s too.
