I dig both of those! Only thing would be to straigten up the "Beer Man" logo so that the vertical lines are, well, vertical. Other than that, those are sweet!
Nice work, even with the problems. I think I like the glove explosion the best just because of the dramatic effect with the powder cloud. I was thinking about busting a light bulb or something, but timing it just right is tricky without special equipment. I was considering some kind of pendulum device to strike the bulb so that I could calculate the timing of impact. I have a time delay trigger which, if I account for shutter lag, I can calibrate to trip the shutter at the moment of impact. That way I can use the shutter to freeze the action rather than a flash. Your issue with flash duration can be a problem with conventional strobes. People don't realize that strobes have such a long pulse when you crank the power. They can freeze human motion fine, but forget about projectiles or explosions.
I did a course a few years ago at the Edgerton Center at MIT where we froze bullets as they went through fruit or split playing cards. They had specialized strobes that had only a half millisecond duration. They were like 30-40 years old. I wish I could find something like that on Ebay or something. I've looked but never found anything. In my lab we have some high-speed video equipment which can shoot 1-megapixel images at about 1200 pictures per second. You can do partial images at frame rates much higher than that. Shutter speeds can be set as low as 5 microseconds, but you have to have a hell of a lot of light for it. I have done some fun videos with water balloons, projectiles, etc. which I could post somewhere if anyone is interested.
FBJ... don't say "meh." I like it! It has an abstract quality to it that is intriguing. It reminds me of artistic etchings. It's cool.
Okay. I think I just put my last image up for this Challenge. After this one, I can't stomach any more.
OK now that's just creepy! You can't stomach anymore? After that do you think the rest of us can either?
:congrats: I'll be seeing THAT in my head for a while. Nice photo--and I'll bet y'all aren't having too much fun playing with that eye, eh?
Anyway, I have no glass eye to shock you with, but I did put up a few more from last night:
My photo page is HERE.
Not really photo related per se. But have been wondering..
How do you link to just one post in a thread?
And awesome additions by everyone! Will try and add some more soon...
Click the #119 in the top right hand corner of that post, KKCF. That will take you to a new window that shows just your post. Then it's just a matter of copying the link location and adding it to a new post via the "add link" button.
I'm starting to post some on page 3... http://www.letsgokings.com/bbs/showp...1&postcount=52
