Skittles

Today I've been playing with skittles.


This took 156 exposures to get right, 5 at a time in burst mode. This one was actually exposure number 48, but I didn't realise until quite a while later that it was the best. I used a relatively slow shutter and flash on rear curtain to freeze the ball and skittle while maintaining motion blur.

For the dailyshoot assignment, I shot another without flash. Instead, I used a tungsten lamp for a warm feel and a slow shutter. This led to the falling skittles and the swinging ball becoming abstract blurs around the central skittle, which I managed to miss completely.


Finally I have one taken from a different angle. I prefer the feeling of motion in the first, but the composition of this one.
