Shaolin Glider


Posted on Wed 29th Mar, 2006, 9:00am

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 30 secs, Aperture: f/22,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: Wireless, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, Focal length: 100mm,
Captured: 13th March 2006, 8:30pm,

This is a photo I took specifically for the trickery photo competition, the theme of which was comfort.

It was done in my hallway with a flashgun and reflector, but I ended up still using a long exposure to fill in the shadows properly.

Ok how you make the trainer fall over in 30secs without showing any method of how it fell over?

Time for some new shoes Jamey? Oh wait you have 100 some odd pair to choose from. Nice work.

Strange one, and they dolook comfortable

Sys - I moved the shoe with my hand. It's just that the exposure was long enough for my interference not to register.

Very good technical flashgun you got. I need a lesson from you.

Voted for this one on the Trickery competition. Very nice colours and a good idea.

Hey jmey, absolutely class shot mate, fantastic! I am just gettin into photography at the mo, and am loving the long exposure shots you have done. Could you please give me a un down as to how you achieved this shot (my long exposure shiots tend to look totally blurred and messy!!) Cheers man!

Jamey, Sat 1st Apr, 2006, 6:17pm
Hi. The most important thing for long exposures is a decent tripod. And if you're shooting outside in bright daylight you'll probabny want some ND filters too. This shot was just done on the floor in my house. Flash fired first than a 30 sec exposure for background.

Cheers Jamey, one final question tho - how did you avoid huge blur lines (it looks like two images superimposed on top of each other - mint!) and how did u knock over the shoe without gettin your hand in on the shot? Sorry for the 20 q's mate, I just really am intrigued by this shot!!

Jamey, Sun 2nd Apr, 2006, 7:16am
There are no blur lines because the only movement throughout the whole 30 sec exposure amounted to about 2 seconds max, which isn't enough to show. The 'moving' shoe started out resting againt the other one then about 10 secs into the exposure I laid it on its side.
