paintball frozen motion destruction shot.

sorry for the lame thread before..

Heres a quick pic done using strobe photography. Thought it was pertinant to paintball and to small talk. Lemme know if you love it/hate it.

It's interesting. Would have been a lot better if you could have captured all the splatter to the left. Use a faster shutter speed... and try to make everything but the glass and the paint black. Use a black table cloth or something.

Interesting idea, but poor execution.

haha. Thanks Angel Air. You Dont use a faster shutter speed. It would be near impossible to catch this just by timing it in the dark. This photo was accomplished by using a microphone that trips a strobe light when it hears sound. A very long shutter speed in total darkness with a split second of light is how i did this photo. Poor execution isnt a factor here..

Yeah, i might reshoot it someday wiht a black backdrop and surface, i agree that would make it look better..

If you could focus on the paint it would look awesome, and if you had a silver or black table.

I would set the light for a lesser ammount of time, but I'm using a 50 dollar strobe light... I can only get so much out of it for the price. I'm using a rig i found in a magazine called MAKE. Heres a link to it if you want to check it out.

I agree that focusing on the paint would make it excellent, just gotta figure that one out.. kinda tough cause the camera is close to the glass, so a few inches of paint deviation will be out of focus

wounder if you could accomplish this with that kit..

I always knew you could use the flash to freeze this kinda thing but I never really thought about using a mic to trip it.

I love seeing stuff like this. I think it would've been better a little bit earlier.

I like the new Cola can one. The framing could've been a little better, but it's still quite interesting.

Only problem with the soda can is the lighting on it. The big hot spot is distracting.

like i said, lighting is difficult with cheap cheap strobe lights
I could use a diffuser, but that probably wouldnt allow enough light for the small soda bursts. I guess I could also try dodge/burn in photoshop, i think i will do that..

I like where it's going, and how ghetto your setup is. Quite frankly, I'm kindof surprised you're getting as good of shots that you are WITH your setup.

What camera body/glass are you using?

I have a canon digital rebel XT with the lens that comes with it. Im using a 50 dollar strobe from musiciansfriend.com, dont know the specifics, and the MAKE strobe kit..

The strobe is great cause you can use it more than once in a picture to make some sweet results...
