    Obviously some editing done in photoshop, these were all taken with similar settings (except #1) and I just adjusted some colors to see how I felt...

    C&C Welcome.. 2 is kinda abstract, no clear focus... I'm not sure how I feel about it..

    I think 1 is my favorite...

    Thanks guys :)

    I used the on camera flash, took a big peice of orange construction paper, and cut some strips of purple construction paper, put them in my bathroom sink, filled it up almost to the top, and let the faucet drip.. All pics were handheld (I took like 30 and these were the best ones lol... I had some really great ones focus wise but I'd grab some white from the sink or something and ruin it...)

    Surprisingly, I've never tried this. If done right, they look pretty cool. Good job.

    nope, didn't get wet, not at all... just don't be stupid and drop it in the water :rofl:

    I'd set it to 55mm, turn it on Manual focus, hold the lens to the camera by the focus ring, then focus by rolling your middle / ring fingers left and right on the lens.. its pretty hard to get the grip down but once you do you can get the hang of it..

    I bought mine for £5 from Ebay, it's ideal if you wanna kept the lens secure.

    The low-tech methods always impress me the most.
