HOWTO Take A Camera Toss Snapshot

camtoss.jpg

From Ryan Gallagher’s Camera Toss Blog:

  • Use “timer function” or longish exposure setting.
  • Depress the shutter button (timing depends on your technique).
  • Throw your camera into the air during or just before it exposes.
  • Catch camera (optional).

    …Garr, you assume that everyone on Boing Boing is an unenlightened prude. Shame on you.

    Steven, you have a nasty opinion of your readers :)

    Sounds suspiciously like it was invented by the companies waiting at the ready with new cameras to replace the ones you break doing this.

    Better yet, O_M, where do you find a place with pole dancers that allows photography?

    …This is a variation on a technique that’s great for shooting people dancing, especially entertainers who are “pole dancers”. You set for a long exposure, click the shutter while the dancers move for about a half a second, then swiftly angle and jiggle the camera upwards to the blinking disco lights above them. It takes a little practice, but you can produce some really interesting random effects without having to frack with Photoshop masks & layers.

    …Easy. Just get yourself a job running the website for a GC, and then don’t do any shots nuder than a string bikini. After all, you don’t want to give away the goods for free :-P

    O_M: I’m sure our readers would appreciate a link to any pole dancing examples. ;)
