    Default laser photography

    So, lasers being the tricky buggers to photograph I was wondering what settings people use? I have just bought a canon 600d and a 50mm f1.8 lens for lower light stuff, I am also new to photography so any advice gladly taken...
    I do also have a 18-200mm lens but prefer the 50mm one.

    You can see some of my pictures in the link below. I'd have to look at the exif data to see what the settings were.

    A custom made one I bought from another member here.

    Here's the settings and hardware I used.

    Canon 50D
    Canon EF-S 10-22
    f/3.5
    1/8 second
    ISO-800
    10mm focal length

    No flash with plenty of fog in my garage.

    One thing i would recommend is to just play with it, manual settings and just do random stuff, just don't make the mistake i did with an other camcorder and hit the beam dead on, even a modern camera can be damaged by that, you will need a decent tripod or something to set the camera on
    Polk SDA SRS, Parasound HCA 3500, Luxman M117, Onkyo 504, 7.62X39, sometimes a ball on a string is the greatest of toys for us nonhuman types. oh and some lasers, lots of lasers
