Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: 30 Seconds or More (Basic Editing III*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Location: home
Date: Jun 18, 2006
Aperture: f8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 30 sec strobes
Galleries: Persuasive
Date Uploaded: Jun 19, 2006

To comply with challenge 30 sec exposure a blacklight was kept on through the entire session. Black pants, black socks and a blue shirt with white collar and sleeve cuffs. Here we preserve the main flash for the conclusion. Two flashes are set up with red and blue filters. These fire each time: Put a black robe on so as not to weaken the double exposures. Take first position and press flash with knee. Repeat this four times then remove robe with head held low and then rise slightly above, press main light unit on and then all flashes go off for final take. Freeze to allow blacklight to register just a touch until shutter closes.

Of course, the main light is aimed higher and it is filterless while the two gel lights are aimed lower, but by using a powerful main for the final take, it overides and renders normal skin tones.

You do in-camera, what I can't even do in Photoshop.
Amazing.
Congrats on your top 20 finish, though should have been in top 10 imo.

Congrats on the top 20, Dan. No wonder the guy looks familiar - it was you! Should've guessed that. Great execution, and it's fun to read on your description about how you did that.

Congrats on top 20 Dan, but I think it should have been higher, like a blue.

I like this a lot. Nice job.

A remarkable image that truly captures the ambiance of the jazz club settings. I shall work on the premise that the lighting (colour) changed during the exposure time frame.

Very well done. I can readily see this in the winners' circle at the end of the day.

This one couldn't have been easy. Nice job getting subject's movment and still keeping everything sharp. Must have been using lights or flashes for the stop motion. Nice Job.
