On Google+ there are many daily photo themes that people can contribute to. One of my favourites is #halfnekkidthursday. Sometimes i have a bit of an experiment to try and add something a bit different. One thing i’ve played about with is a homemade pinhole attachment placed on my DSLR. A few photos can be found on a previous blog here.
Last week i tried another experiment using and old flashgun i have from the film days. It has a setting that give a slow pulse of flashes, and also a fast strobe effect that lasts about 15 seconds.
I set the camera up with the pinhole attachment and used a shutter speed of 2.5 seconds, then used an infra-red remote control to take the photo, and pressed the button on the flash at the same time. By sitting still and moving my head i got this result. Simple but effective.
I did virtually all the editing in the camera, i just tweaked it slightly on the PC, and cropped it a little.
