Two days ago there was a power failure at my locality, I knew it was regular 2 hour power cut, so I had to kill time or rather make it creative.
Now for the set up
My room was dark, Things I had
Canon EOS 500D
Canon 18-55MM F3.5 – 5.6
Canon speedlite 580EX
Cactus wireless trigger
brown carton box
Let me start from the table, I placed the brown carton box on one corner and placed Canon Speedlite 580 EX inside the box along with Cactus wireless receiver attached, placed the incense before the box for the smoke
Now on to the camera, attached Cactus transmitter and mounted on the tripod, framed the scene, set the camera in manual mode, Aperture F9, shutter 1/125, Don’t forget to set the lens auto focus to off, and try to focus on the edge of the box. One more thing on the camera you need to set up for remote control.
Check the Cactus wireless and transmitter are in sync, try trigger the transmitter while the Flash is turned on.
Move to your position and trigger via wireless remote.
If your face is getting bleached i.e over exposed, try to move little further away or decrease the flash power
The brown box did a wonderful job of warming up the smoke.
A tap on the box triggered the dust, It was in dust for a long time.
Shot with Olympus 500UZ
While I was returning home from my office I saw lightning, so I decided to take few shot of the same after I reach home, but the nature cheated on me. It was windy but few lightning were happening randomly, but was not up to my expectation so I decided to take few long exposure shots, After I started working on long exposures, I felt I should even try bokeh so are the result. Hope you enjoy it.

Seems like Google wants to embrace the non social networking sites to be part of social networking sites.
If you thought Myspace, Ning and Facebook made a killing, Please welcome the new Kid on the Block – Google Friend Connect. Do check the introduction video for more elaborate answers.
I see a lot of traffic to be increased to the personal or corporate websites too. All you need to do is sign up then embed few piece of code in to your website and let your friends and customers do the talking (bring the traffic back to you)
How does the traffic happen?
When ever a visitor visits a site and interact, their interactions are being reflected as updates in to the social networking sites which they belong. The updates are not mandatory, if wished, the interactions are reflected.
Corporate sites could integrate friend connect to have more authentic users
Personal websites could bring all friends buzzing among themselves and create new friends too
An approach to fight spam is unleashed.
I just received a notification on my Facebook, a friend of mine just wrote this on my Super Wall application.
