Laser Weapon

We'll put this one in the happy accident category. I was experimenting with the night portrait mode of my camera, trying a self portrait. The camera was having some trouble with auto focus, so I used the light on my phone to illuminate me so that it could focus. My intention was to switch over to manual focus after it had a fix on me. I didn't realize that the shutter was open this whole time. I thought the end result was kind of fun, so that's the image I chose to post.
Yes, indeed - a very fun shpt!
So neat when experimentation yields happy surprises!

Since we appear to have the same camera, my challenge for you is to explore the Creative Filter, specifically the miniature camera filter to its best utilization. .

@lynbonn I like the challenge. One of my goals has been to explore every setting on my camera. I'm not 100% sure that I understand what the Creative Filter is. I have a Creative Auto setting on the mode dial. I've used that in the past when I wanted an automatic setting, but wanted to control whether the flash was on or off. I just looked at it, and there are a bunch of ambiance settings and a background blur setting. I don't know what the miniature camera filter is. Our cameras are not exactly the same. My model number does not have an i after it. T6 versus T6i. If you can help me find the miniature camera filter, I'll give it a shot.

@lynbonn Aha! I found it. Excellent challenge. I didn't even know that feature was in there.
