    jumping

    The Lunch period at school is longer than the time it takes to eat, so we try our best to entertain ourselves (AKA find excuses to be nonproductive). I think the following images are self-explanatory.

    Good stuff. Trying out such creative approaches is what learning is about. So, contrary to your own statement, I think you are being totally productive ....... as well as having fun.

    G'day Troy,

    Love that first shot.
    On camera in-built flash was it?
    Very creative and expressive.

    I agree, Troy, the first shot is exceptional: very creative. The second tells a wonderful story, really shows the moment. It's a pity it's a trifle out of focus, or was it a cellphone camera shot? If so, it's pretty impressive.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    I'm assuming that it is you, Troy, on the ground in #2, looking at #1 on the camera.

    That's what I figured, as well, but didn't know if it was a mobile phone or someone else with a camera.

    Re: jumping

    The second shot isn't out of focus....it's just ripped off of facebook and uploaded to tinypic. As a matter of fact, this is a photo of the same person holding the same camera (LINK).

    Well, thanks everybody for the words of encouragement. To answer your question Hans, the ground and building behind the camera was all white/off-white, acting like a large diffuse reflector. The rest was manual tone mapping. In retrospect, I should have increased the shutter speed from 1/200 to 1/400 or so. I figured the motion blur would be artistic, and maybe it is, but i would rather see motion stopped.

    I just woke up from an all-night party following our graduation ceremony, so I couldn't quite get around to this thread lately

    Re: jumping

    I think you nailed the shutter speed. If completely frozen I think it would loose something. But just my opinion
