Time and Motion

F/2.8   ---   ¼ Sec ---   ISO 100   ---   67mm


I bought a couple of cheap so-called scientific toys
a little while ago, with the intention of photographing them. Well, eventually I found a spare couple of hours to set up a light box, a couple of flashes and a tripod and off I went.

f/16   ---   1 Sec   ---   ISO 100   ---   67mm






The intention was to freeze motion while capturing motion trails. For that you require a combination of flash and slow shutter speed.
 





f/11   ---   1 Sec   ---   ISO 100   ---   65mm


 As is my wont (and 35mm purists will no doubt shudder at this) I shot off a couple of hundred frames, messing about with all sorts of camera and flash settings, changing gels, re-positioning the subject and so on.










f/22   ---   10 Sec   ---   ISO 100   ---   65mm


I won't say that the results were disappointing - they weren't - but, well, there was no "wow" at the end of it all. More, "Yeah, that's ok I suppose."


f/22   ---   6 Sec   ---   ISO 100   ---   57mm





If I'm honest, I don't really know what I expected. I think that the environment wasn't quite right and I also think that my images do not display at their best on my rather elderly monitors.

I'll no doubt have another go at something similar one day, but for now, these are a few of those that made the final cut, which was about a tenth of the whole shoot.
