"I brought these for you..."
Yeah I've had good luck on several lenses prior, this guy was a crook and due to my persistence is no longer selling.I've always been timid about lenses on ebay. I buy only from the Trusted sellers with the highest ratings. Always seems to work out well. You pay a little more for the piece of mind.
very coolThis picture doesn't deserve to be in this thread from an artistic standpoint, but since there is talk of technique I thought I would add it.
Last night I figured I would start to muck about with high speed photography. I won't be in town to pick up electronics components to do a piezoelectric or mic-based trigger for a bit, so I figured I'd go low tech. Two sheets of cardboard with tin foil at the edges acting as a switch on the flash. Set the camera up for a long exposure in total darkness, stumbled my way to a piece of wood I'd put on the floor to get my mark and then hit the bag with the trigger taped to it.
There was no delay, so you don't really get the deflection of the bag. Also, the trigger cast a shadow on my hand and even when edited out it doesn't look quite right. Still, as first attempts go I think I like direction and will play around with it more in future.
