Camera tossing, one source, different people, different cameras...
This is a multi-photographer camera tossing collaboration.

The goals of this experiment are to stimulate collaboration, co-inspiration, and to see what results different people will get if they use the same source target. There will only be a difference in the type of camera and monitor each one will use and the settings of both.
What is Camera Tossing? (Are you new?)
Camera tossing means your camera is free in the air while taking the photo, not moved in your hand, attached to a strap, which you hold in your hand, or something else. If you are new or not sure what it is please read the tutorials which are listed below:

Instructions for Beginners
Mini-HowTo
HowTo

...and be careful while tossing your camera, you will do this on your own risk!
Rules / Instructions
Ok, let’s start the experiment...

1. Use only the image which is available for download below.

2. Display this image on your computer monitor in fullscreen mode.

3. Be sure that the room is almost dark. In an almost dark room you will get the best results.

4. Toss your camera in front of your monitor. Don’t forget to catch it ;-)

5. IMPORTANT Upload your images to your flickr account and tag them with the required tags and the required text/code to the description (see below).

6. IMPORTANT Modify your flickr licensing on the photo to Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike Creative Commons. This is absolutely required. (See "Collaboration and Licensing" below).

7. Post your images (the flickr-small size) to this thread with a short description, what kind of monitor CRT or TFT, some special camera settings you have used, what post-processing...

8. Post-processing is allowed but only adjusting colors, brightness, contrast or resize. Not allowed is editing the shape, means removing or adding something. The shape is made in camera not with Photoshop!

9. Most importantly, have fun with this experiment and camera tossing :-)

Is the little CC license image supposed to show up in the description. I cut and pasted the required description language, and it's not there?

Also, we should reference what size image we want pasted into the discussion thread. I'd suggest medium, and that's how I'll start things off.

I did a big session with this, posted a few already. Here's a smattering:

All of these are with my Canon SD1000. Still struggling with noise/focus issues, but not too shabby. Have the CHDK hacked firmware installed also which I was using to control ISO and exposure. It can't directly control aperature (at least not this build) but managed to get it locked into F2.8. ISO mostly at 400, exposures mostly between 1/10th and 1/4th. LCD is whatever this inspiron 600m has on it. Full brightness unless you see the striping, then it was at 80% brightness. I was using Tungsten w/b for all of these, my laptop doesn't do a very good "black" and using accurate color balances just means I end up with lots muddy gray all over the frame. yick.

@Fluffz
Glad to have the newcomers trying it out!

Have you tried placing some pillows or other objects around to catch your phone? So you don't have to be afraid of dropping it? When you do that you'll find you can really give it a good spin (and worry less while doing so). That really seems to be the only thing lacking in your examples so far, that extra spin will really transform the geometry of the result. Timing the throw with phones can be tricky too, because many of them will "lag" quite a while before starting the picture taking.

@nbicanic - Ah, that means you weren't using a "full-screen" view for the toss effort, but that the software program border you were using to view the source image was still showing? If so, try to find a way to view the source image with no additional light elements showing...full-screen view only. Also, please add the required language in your image description, as described above in the rules/instructions.

We are just getting started! We hope to do maybe one a month, really give everyone a chance to explore each one. Obviously you can get infinite variety out of something this simple, no need to rush.

As for a thread for "suggesting sources"... the moderators and a few senior members all have their heads together on this topic but down the road I could see perhaps taking public suggestions of patterns to use, perhaps even modify the html/code attribution to include special thanks to those that have created a theme. But for now, if you have ideas, just go for it on your own. Your images in the pool will be inspiration a plenty for the rest of the community.

clickykbd PRO 7 years ago
Nice ones Jonathan. Glad to see you join in after being so interested with the Teasers.
MOD
mtnrockdhh PRO 7 years ago
And...agree about the focus issue. I personally find the monitor subjects to be the least forgiving of toss targets focus-wise, likely owing to the shallow DOF that results from a wide open aperture and a very close subject coupled with tosses at this close distance not always being exactly the same distance from the source as where the focus was set. Anyone else have similar observations?
admin
clickykbd PRO Posted 7 years ago. Edited by clickykbd (admin) 7 years ago
Yeah. I also think many of the auto-focus mechanisms fail to lock in a good focus on subjects like this... I found I did better about mid way through my trials with this source if i'd turn the lights on between each re-focus and set the focus using the edge of the screen, rather than the back-lit subject.

If your camera has an AFL (auto focus lock) feature you can use this to your advantage to set the focus once and then attempt to do a whole series from about the same distance. There is still variation though once you get going, we aren't machines.

Would be great if there was some way to force the camera toss to always be in the same plane from the subject. Perhaps with an internally focusing/zoom model you could use some plexi-glass and have the toss proceed along it, always in contact. But then again, varying the distance (falling towards/away) is a great technique to try out too.

Precisely knowing your camera's minimum focus distance helps too, to get closer, experimentation with macro-focus modes might be required, but sometimes this has adverse effects on the ability to use a large aperture (as it seems to with mine).
mick l PRO 7 years ago
I've always assumed the focus issue was a limitation of the camera I'm using, compounded by the abuse it takes. (It's nearing the end of its lifecycle, it no longer allows a focus function before triggering the timer.)
I've had to delete hundreds of otherwise acceptable images, whether shooting the monitor, TV (also LCD), neon, or street type lighting. Looking for something with more manual control, particularly focus. (The wife would absolutely have a fit if she knew I was considering throwing the DSLR >:-p )
MOD
mtnrockdhh PRO 7 years ago
I've been using the 'focus-on-monitor elements" technique coupled with the auto-focus assist beam, and it works fairly well, even in the dark. Have done several using both macro-mode and normal mode as well, and there seems to be little difference in tolerance. Moving a bit further away, and zooming to a longer focal length somethimes helps, but the best is to be far enough away from the monitor to have a decent DOF, which I use when attempting the toss with lateral movement toward or away from the screen. The relative small size of the target, though makes keeping it in the frame on these horizontal motion shots tough. So I'm going to go about it in a different axis and see what happens.

I have noted that my A-series Canon, which has manual aperture and exposure control produces better focused images from the monitor (and during other odd-technique shoots) because I can force a smaller aperture to increase DOF, but then have to use a higher ISO to compensate, and thereby increase noise. And the lower resolution is a loss over the SD900, so I keep trying with the SD.

Wouldn't plexi-glass be 'cheating'? :-)

@ mick - could be your shutter release button has some dirt under it. I noticed mine do this, and blew some dry air under the edge of the button while moving it around, and it started working again...until I missed a catch that landed in wet, muddy grass...then I had to send it in for cleaning.
admin
clickykbd PRO 7 years ago
*smacks himself*

Duh. I've had my AF-assist turned off ever since i bought this camera. I'll have to try that. I normally hate it because of the "i'm about to take your picture" aspect to it.

Also, some of you have watched these appear in my stream... but more on the theme, with a twist. ;-)

The project has come off well so far I think. I know it's had some decent viewership outside the members of this group too... because at least a couple of us have had a theme photo climb into the ranks of Explore. And thanks to the description block, they know exactly what's going on and can follow the link trail back here to get the full scoop.

Anyone out there who has thought about trying it but is hesitant for any reason? We'd like to know! Maybe it's something in our language of the introduction post? Maybe it's just too darn long? We want to improve for the next Theme.

I know this is older, but I just did some things with collaboration #2 and thought I would throw a few on #1 since I didnt get to participate when it originally debuted (a sheer lack of awareness on my part).

This is from Macbook Pro 15" ultrabright. I used a Pentax Optio A30 in "text" setting which allows me to invert the image on the camera. Post processing only involved cropping on the left side

44 months gone since the last post here. Way too long. I found this recently and was very excited to try it on my own. I got two old compact cameras via ebay to minimize the amount of money wasted, if they hit the ground.
This one was made with an EX-Z4, the image was displayed on a MBP 13" screen at full brightness, enabling me to use ISO 50 to minimize noise in the picture. The image is cropped (from 4:3 to 3:2), color and contrast were adjusted in Lightroom.

I like the flickering in the pictures shown above, maybe I will find an old monitor that flickers, too ;)
