    Default help with cotton candy

    been playing with getting that cotton candy effect on the water and still struggling a bit....any suggestions / tips would help.....

    currently using Nikon D50 digital SLR, can go as low as 200 ISO and make most adjustments that a film SLR can do....using a tripod and the timer so I don't jiggle the camera.....

    below are a few experiments

    thanks in advance

    Those look like some good pics to me. I really would like to do the same thing but, unfortunately, i don't think i can get that effect on my optio w20.

    Between this photography forum and all the pictures already being posted, y'all are making it really hard on me. That slr camera has stopped calling my name and is now yelling my name!

    Well to be honest i'm not really looking, it's more of a want. Right now, i'm trying to get a house so spending that kind of money on a camera isn't really feasible at the moment, although i'm sure i could squeeze it in somehow.

    If i were to get one, though, i think it would be a digital slr. I have casually looked at some over the past couple months and found the nikon d60 that i really like, i imagine it's pretty similar to yours. Like i said, i just can't really fathom spending that kind of money (camera + lens + accesories) right now. It is definitely on my lust list, though. They are so neat you can do so many things with them. I will keep an eye out and if i find a good deal i may have to jump on it but for right now i will probably just sit on the sidelines and enjoy all of y'alls pictures.

    Get the house. In a few years from now, the camera will be obsolete and you'll need a new one, the house will be worth more.
    My posts are worthless without pictures

    Buckeye,
    They look great to me. All I know is to slow the shutter time down and raise the aperture. I don't play with the ISO much except late evening shots when I notice I'm at max aperture and my shutter time is getting too high with auto settings.--Bran
