Nicely done. To get the beam pics, burn some incense in the room or spray some aerosol deodorant in the air. Also, the beam is "brighter" coming at you. So take the picture from in front of the laser (mind your eyes and your camera lens).

Peace,
dave

Do NOT spray it ON the lens. Just spray it into the air. Give it a few minutes to dissipate. If you are using incense, allow it to "fill" the room. You do NOT need to be choking on the smoke. It takes very little to add the needed visualizer (small particles) to the air.

Peace,
dave

you diode is still backwards in your first pics... hehehe *

Congrats on burning stuff!! It's great isn't it? So what exactly did you burn? Electrical tape? Leather? Balloons? A little sister?

I'm glad that, in some sort of roundabout way, I helped contribute to someones first burning by noticing a backwards silicon diode * ;D ;D

EDIT: *Oh yeah, as far as taking laser pics, put your ISO as high as you can without getting any noise in the picture, and play with exposure times until you get the look you want *

For a really cool effect, if you're outside in the dark, turn the flash on as well as a high exposure time. The flash lights up the foreground and the long exposure lights the background as well as displays the beam (because when the flash is on you normally cant see a beam very well)

there are a few tricky parts with getting the focus ring to work correctly, because the 405nm diode is much shorter than the original diode that was in there, but its not too bad.
