DAng....I'm not sure if I have any "pictures of flash-illuminated dust motes and/or moisture that are mistakenly referred to as orbs"  lol.  Gonna have to go look.  I'm happy people like this thread.  I'm enjoying it just as much! CHeers!

All you need is a dark or dim background & foreground, a flash on your camera.
Also helps if you take the shot under a Tree that is shaking or being shaken at the time so there are plenty of unfocused bugs or leafs in the shot.
The Photo of the Orbs I took was helped by throwing the cats into the tree.. Unfortunately, some of the leaf matter & a twig the cats shook loose in this shot are in focus, so it gives away the trick..
(anyhow, that's how the shot was taken )

Just want to make it clear that I've seen an orb before with the naked eye, so I know they do exists.. Am a believer myself..

Yeah I know how to make pics with those things people mistake for orbs...I just don't think I have any on hand, because I rarely use my flash and when I do, I always bounce it to the ceiling which tends to eliminate the photographic phenomenon known as orbs.  I'll come up with something though!

This is fantastic.  Love the texture that the frost gives the leaves.

I'm Upload my photo's to TinyPic http://tinypic.com/
Then adding them to the post by using the Image Function in the post editor..

Once you have your photo's in tinypic, copy the URL to your Post and Vwalla, you can post full screen images and not just a thumbnail.

Flickr is pain to post from. I'm sure I did it once before but can't figure out how to again. Maybe someone else knows though...I'm using photobucket.

Hi Sarah, using your flicker in your sig I think this is what you want to do
  • right click on the image you want ie
flickr right click.JPG
  • I clicked on the Medium 500 link
  • right click again
  • choose "copy image url"
  • paste link using the editor photo tags ie
editor photo tags.JPG

and voila!

Posted Image

Edit to add: you are incredibly talented. I love your photos

Used to work for me too, but can no longer use the link here - I get an image type not supported error

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?
