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 :-)

Source Image
Preview:




Download appropriately sized source image for your monitor resolution here:
www.cameratossing.de/theme2

Help displaying source image (full screen)?
If you have no image viewer which supports fullscreen mode you can use this one (it's freeware):

XnView www.filehippo.com/download_xnview/4103/
Note: We are not responsible for the software you can download on that page.

It's available in different languages and for different operating systems. After installation you have to go to the menue Tools - Options - View - Fullscreen and uncheck the box "show information". This removes the local file path information in fullscreen mode which is normally shown in the upper left corner. To view the image in fullscreen mode right click on the image and select "View in fullscreen".

Publication other than Flickr
Maybe your images will be posted on Ryan’s (clickykbd) blog (cameratoss.blogspot.com) or on Jen's (QuakkauQ) website (www.cameratossing.de) with an article about that experiment. If we post something we will do that with full attribution, means your image, your name / flickr name and a link to your flickr page.

If you DO NOT want your images published this way, you need only add an additional tag so that we can ignore them easily:

cameratoss:blog="no"

Collaboration and Licensing
Due to the collaborative/educational nature of this theme, the inherent building upon ideas of others (Camera Toss) and producing derivative works (Source Image), we have elected to license aspects of this collaboration using the Creative Commons.

The source image and this collaboration (including the text of this post) are lincensed under Creative Commons; Attribution, Non-Commercial, Share-Alike 2.0:





By participating you agree to honor the terms of this license, which includes applying the same license to your results. This is handled in the html/code description/attribution we provide, but we also ask that you change your flickr license selection to match.

Be careful using your images outside of flickr, as the attribution and licensing requirements also apply anywhere else you share/use/display your results.

To not comply with these licensing requirements of the collaboration, or to use the source image or your resulting photographs commercially, is to be in voiolation of the license and subject to action against the copyright infringement.

This is not meant to scare you. But we do take this matter seriously as there are cases in the past of graphic designers using camera toss images illegally.

If you have questions concerning licensing or using your image outside of sharing it on flickr, please inquire in this thread. We'll be glad to address questions/concerns.

this project inspired me to toss a few again!
I do not know why my screen created that additional striation-maybe someone else does-but I like the effect

Macbookpro monitor. I adjusted contrast, brightness, noise and color.







j neuberger Posted 7 years ago. Edited by j neuberger (member) 7 years ago
oh and by the way, I couldn't figure out the instructions above for "full screen mode" so I put the image on a power point slide and set PP to "slide show." --in case anyone else wants to try that
eastofnorth PRO 7 years ago
That is probably your answer to the extra striation. ;-) I'll try it tonight.
j neuberger 7 years ago
thanks eastofnorth/Katherine. that makes sense. except that when I projected the ppt onto a big screen the extra stripes went away (unfortunately I couldn't get the room very dark and I couldn't figure out how to focus very well--this is the only one (of very many)that came out at all

Canon Ixus 50, Sony SDM-S75D TFT, Lightroom: increased contrast and brightness, reduced vibrance but increased saturation. Lowered the blue luminosity to help hide the monitor glow.
