Challenge: Free Study 2008-09 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Canon
Location: My home
Date: Sep 3, 2008
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 200
Shutter: 30 seconds
Date Uploaded: Sep 28, 2008

Opened shutter up for 30 seconds and used a flashlight to paint the projector and used smoke to define the light beam from the projector. Processing includes black and white conversion with slight brown tone then that layer's opacity was lowered slightly to let some color come through but still give it an old tyme feel.

I've had this projector in my family since it was new and I've personally had it for 18 years and since I've had it never had to change a bulb. I've used it occassionally for watching old home movies but mainly it's just "decoration". :)

Nice and nostalgic, and this reminds me of so many times viewing actual film movies at home or in school. I wonder how this would look in B&W or sepia.

It took everyone by complete and utter shock that day, when the old movie camera opened fire and started disintegrating the audience with its death ray.

Hours later, it was finally taken out in a hail of gunfire from the local sheriff's office, but only after decimating most of the town.

Nice capture of the light rays, and a nice composition of the reels and projector.

Having worked on NLE's for the past 12 years, this one almost brings tears to my eyes, now this is Americana art!
