Playing with a box, Black paper, Prism light and Rose Quartz

Today I did an little experiment.

I took a box,  some black paper and covered the insides of the box with it. Then I took my little Prism light stand and put one of my Rose Quartz  on it.

It looked spectacular with the naked eye and when I photographed it I hoped to capture the “energy field” around the Rose Quartz. I was very happy when I downloaded the photo’s and saw the results.

I used my Canon EOS 7D, my 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS Lens, my Takara Tripod and my Hahnel Remote Shutter Release. I took over 140 photo’s to get the right effects. The best photo’s came out with the following settings: Shutter Speed 1/10, Aperture Value  5.6 and  ISO 2500.

This will not be the last time that I’ll be playing with my box, paper, Prism Light….

A quote from a book hubby bought me about different crystals.

“Rose quartz is an important crystal for removing blocked emotional stress. It is generally considered to encourage love and harmony. It is true that the vibration of pink does reduce aggression and promote understanding and empathy, but it is a mistake to think that because of this wearing a rose quartz will make you feel happier…… Keeping some Rose quartz at your bedside can sometimes be effective as an aid to restful sleep.”  – Healing and Harmony for Body, spirit and home.

Project 365 Photo a day: 365/29

My photo of they day delivered more than one photo.

On one of hubby’s trip’s he bought me a Crystal with a cross in it for me. According to the man where he bought it it’s made for a Capricorn. We then bought a little stand for it with little lights at the bottom and it turns into different colours. I just love it and at one stage I packed it away high on a shelf so that no one can touch it, not even the cat.

Well today I took it off the shelf and I decided I am going to do a little experiment. I used a box and inside I covered it with black paper. I then put the little light and Crystal in the box and set my camera to manual. First I tried taking photo’s without a tripod and my remote but that did not work that great. So I  used my tripod an Hahnel Remote Shutter Release.  I did get the effect I was after…. Today I am one happy girl.
