    GGGot IT!

    Ah, the stresses of childhood, homework, chores, candy and popcorn.
    Some cloning and a little soft focus added for effect.

    How on earth did you freeze that popcorn at 1/80th second

    Popcorn, what a treat. I had to make do with Marmite butties. Sugar butties on a Sunday of course

    Hrm... The popcorn has an odd glow around it, and an unnaturally dark shadow (compare to the shadow from the lamp). The distance from the popcorn to the shadow seems odd too. Did you composit it in?

    No, that's the real deal, I just tweaked it some and added soft focus.

    Most people give it 30 seconds in a microwave; not freeze it for 1/80

    Do ya think I should go to bed now?

    Geeze, I tried the 30 sec microwave and the 1/80 freeze technique. I still just have a piece of corn. I need a new camera.
