Cool idea, might have to shamelessly copy this :)

Me too! Love it, if this works I might print this out to hang above my desk. You used the maglite to light it up to get the color reflection?

Been a while since I shared anything in this thread.

I started out trying to get this shot with a 100mm Maco lens. Each time the shutter would fire though the bees would jump and fly away to another flower. So I thought I'd try out the extension tube combined with my 70-200. This seemed to work pretty well as I was able to pull back about 2 feet and fill the frame with the flower. I then had to crop, but all in all I think the details are still decent. It was late afternoon, no flash, just natural light.

thanks! yup, to get the rainbow colors all you have to do is take the end cap off of the mag light so there isnt a direct beam, activate shutter and run it about 1-2 inches away from the disc.

some things i learned after about 100 shots...
-to get even smooth color throughout, keep the mag light as level as possible when moving it around the disc and remove the end cap so i just looks like a candle.
-different heights of the mag light will change the colors position on the cd.
-the side of the mag light you start the shot with, keep that side facing the cd the whole time. example: if you start with the mag light pointing directly at the disc, keep it pointing directly at the cd the whole shutter pull as you circle the cd. different angles will create different colors and effects.
-to light up only half of the cd, obviously only run the mag light around half of the cd.
-if you use a glow stick then still use the same techniques as above, but keep in mind it puts out a lot more light so less time is need to make your full sweep.
-keep the glow stick low.

^ wonderful images.
I would have thought at least one polarising filter would have been needed.

Between bouts of studying for finals, I took out my iPad (iPad 2, larger pixels make this easier), camera, nifty fifty, extension tubes, and water bottle and tried something I have been wanting to do for a long time. All I did was put water droplets on my iPad screen and use the natural lens created by the water to make weird effects with the pixels of the display. It worked best with a white picture on the iPad at high brightness. The setup contained my T3i with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 II (stopped down to f/11 for a larger depth of field) and a full set of cheap, non electronic extension tubes, along with a cheap tripod with a geared center column, and a wireless stutter release. The camera was oriented vertically over the iPad and focussing was achieved by using the geared center column to change the distance between the camera and the iPad. These were shot in RAW and no post processing was done except for moderate crops. Here are the results. More can be found on my Flickr page here (external link).

Nothing too special here, but I wanted to share this for anyone who is thinking on buying some studio equipment. I finally bought the B&H Impact flash umbrella setup (external link) (which seems to have gone on sale since I bought it a few days ago) and a 2nd 430EXII flash. This was my first test of the umbrellas, and I'm very happy with the results. This shot of the Ganesh statue is straight out of the camera. I took a few shots to get it right, dialing in the reflected umbrella to reduce the back shadow. Point is that it is really fun doing this and the trial and error method seems to work so far, but I have a lot of learning to do. I am going to be shooting my friend's wedding this summer, so I hope to have a lot of friends pose for me while I figure out how to properly use the setup.

Neat photos (I love that you can see the RBG pixels!), but dude...you need to buy a bike with a proper-sized frame haha :D

It is a full sized frame. Raleigh size XL Misceo 2.0. I just have slightly odd proportions. The seat does go up another 3 inches.

This photo shows the pixels the clearest.
