It was incredibly foggy here last night, so I took the opportunity to take a whirl at laser photography. I am not even an average photographer, having used my iPhone for all photography during the past 4 years. The shots were taken with a Canon 60D at ISO 3200, and a shutter time of ˜20 secs.

I used quite a few of my lasers, including 405, 445, 462, 520, 532, and 635nm..

These pictures were taken at 9PM on the east coast (sun sets at 6:30) so it was quite dark already.

Very first picture I took.. not exactly the best. This is a 500mw 532nm


Adjusted the camera and some settings.. voila, it looked much better


Added a 2w 445nm in there, it seemed to significantly cover the 532 on camera, but not in actuality.


The most crisp beamshot of the night..


More beamshots




Now, just everything thrown together..




And then a little childish discovery at the end.. laser drawing on a garage door!


It was a night of fun. Once past the initial laser burning craze, things like photography are what makes lasers so interesting :D Thanks for looking!

Amazing!

I really like the last picture, it's amazing how much lasers can do past "just burning" things :)

Good job, especially for your first attempt! The photo quality seems to increase as you go from top to bottom.
Be careful with your lasers leaning on that stool, I'd hate to see them fall and get damaged, or worse, have someone catch a stray beam in the eye.

Speaking of that, I had a close call when I was taking these pictures. In retrospect, I realize how lucky I was. Just like you said, one of my lasers slipped and went right past my eye... I only then put on goggles >.<

It taught me a lesson for sure.

Unfortunately laser accidents can be extremely serious. I've heard too many stories over the last 2 years since becoming a member.
Nice pics. I wonder why the 445nm seem to shift in color so much. +REP
