Yesterday i conducted an photographic experiment.
I got a small piece of Quartz Crystal (a small cluster) and a Class III Green Laser pointer.
I made a make shift tripod to hold the Laser in position and taped the Laser button so it was permanently on. I then focused the lasers light on to the quartz. I connected my Canon 1DS Mk2 to a tripod and started shooting.

I took about 30 shots in various modes, with some very interesting results.
This photograph stuck out, it’s quite phallic in it’s shape but also original.

The shot was taken with a Canon 1DS mk2 using 100mm EF Macro lens, Exposure time was 6.4 secs at f18 ISO 400 with no flash.
