    Hey, not bad. Lume shots aren't easy to take, I know. It's all about timing, and patience.

    Nice Work Rockmastermike!

    I tried to take a few lume shots and well... let's just say that I must try again on a day when I have more patience...heh! These are not easy to do.

    Your GW-9100MB-1JF is my favorite of this series.

    Cheers...

    The MIMB Gulfman EL is one of the hardest EL backlight to take. You do not only need a tripod, but also a good stable stand. I built one of Lego. I have an older tripod that can bend (older Velbon can do that).

    Don't expose longer than the EL, that's useless. This is my best of this GulfmanI think:



    Nice, but certainly not my best EL photo.

    Cheers,
