How Did I Do This?
This week’s Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge is “hands.” With these challenges I like to venture out and try to produce an image that is different from what you may expect to see and what has already been captured. Plus, it keeps me sharp trying something new that I’ve not shot before.
Here’s how I shot this image of my hands tossing a basketball in the air…
- Shot inside my garage. The background was the white painted garage wall.
- My Nikon D300 was on a tripod in manual mode and shot at: f/16 with a shutter speed of 0.3 second.
- I set the timer on my camera to 5 seconds. Pressed the shutter button, waited ’till just the right time and tossed the basketball into the air. To get this final image took about eight tries.
Post processing included using Flypaper Textures “Swans Way” background to have an added twist to the final image (-: You can learn more about how to use textured backgrounds here: Textured Background Tutorial.
Thank you for stopping by. I always welcome comments and critiques.
