    Lume Shots with New Camera

    These are my first ever attempt at lume shots. I just got a new camera (Sony DSC-H20) and just had to try it out.

    Decent? Any tips for improvement?

    Thanks!

    Very nice! Especially for "first time".

    Does this camera have the possibility for external flash? I yes, you may try this:

    If no external flash, just experiment by switching the room lights on for a fraction of a second during your long exposure. Just flip them on and off again.

    My camera only has a built-in 'pop-up' style flash.

    My shots were made using a 30 second exposure. I will try using the flash and I will also try your technique of turning the room lights on for a fraction of a second.

    The results you got in your thread were very cool!

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I charged up the lume with my desk lamp. Then put the camera on a mini-tripod, set the camera's exposure time to 30 seconds, turned off the lights and let the camera work it's magic.

    I think they came out pretty cool.

    When I was reading the manual for my camera, I read about the long exposure feature and thought the watch lume would be a perfect subject.

    I'm glad that there are so many of us like-mided watch fans.

    I'm hesitant to even tell 'other' people that I took pictures of my watches, for fear that they'd think I'm crazy. I might as well tell them that I took a picture of my toaster. Lol.
