Carousel by ANewChallenger Carousel by ANewChallenger
King Arthur's Carousel at Disneyland, all blurry and traily and stuff. It looks like FIRE!.... now that I think about it, it almost looks like HELL! Awesome.

Pity +fav.

Joking. This is actually a cool idea and shot. Because its a carousel, and its spinning, and carousels spin. I like it.

You give me too much credit. Anything cool in most of my pictures is a happy accident. Which is why I like digital photography, because I can just go CLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICK and chances are at least one of the pictures turns out interesting.

All the same, glad you like, and thanks for the +fav!

explain to me how you get these amazing shots... so your slowing your shutter speed down to get this effect? this is amazing :deviation:

There is no actual setting called "shutter speed" on the Kodak C310 I use, but there is a setting to allow the camera to receive more or less light, and I assume that it does this by slowing down or speeding up the shutter based on the fact that I can hear the time difference in the :camera:click-click:camera:. In this case the carousel was moving at the time, so that's where the trails come from. The other pictures where I fooled around with this involve me spastically (or not so spastically) waving the camera around while the shutter is open. Most of the time it's a washed out mess if the lighting is too strong, the key is to have relative darkness around a single illuminated object.... or something like that. Which is why Disneyland was so awesome a place to mess around with this for the first time, because it is filled with opportunities just like that.

That was way too long, considering I barely know what I'm talking about. Hope it was detailed enough! :headbang:

No no... i'mm kind of excited to hear about it... makes me reliaze for you its more than just pointing and shooting.. its exercising your arms too! I guess alot of it is still a guessing game no matter what you are taking pictures of. But when you get those shots like you have... it makes you realize its worth it!
