Shutter Malfunction

    Newer Older

    Along with a boat load of dolls, I picked up a few cheap widgets to destroy.

    This quality Bell and Howell camera with a "Japan Lens" was 95 cents, so I picked it up.

    I tamped the initiating device with some clay to help move the action towards the front and it looks like it worked.

    I also got the bright idea yesterday to stop using foam backgrounds. When I first decided I wanted to use colored backgrounds, I used the foam sheets because I could wash them off and use them multiple times.

    But now, I loose a foam sheet each time I make a shot. So paper is much cheaper than a dollar per piece of foam.

      What a way to fix malfunctioning shutter!
      Just wrap it up in the disposable paper... :)

      Greatest of them all. How about a Nikon or Canon? That would create a beautiful "esthetics of destruction" shot. Also use a high speed video for showing debris. WOW!

      I did blow up a Nikon point and shoot with poor results. I can't afford to blow up expensive stuff.

      Same reason why I can't shoot HS video.
