40+37 Magic 8 Ball

    Newer Older

    Random prop + off-camera-flash experimenting - amplified turns into yet another Harry Potter moment. Impressively, the flash will trigger even when almost entirely blocked by hands, or Magic 8 Ball. I will confess, I've never read a Harry Potter, but I have seen the movies and generally think they're ok even when I hate the directing and the jittery storytelling.

      Do you have an 800 or a 600 Speedlight?

      Never read the books, never saw the movies.
      But I do like this shot!

      Whoa -- very cool! Have not seen nor read Harry Potter, but I've seen Harry's johnson -- does that count for something?

      I've seen two of the movie and... meh. Funniest part was one time when leaving the theater someone was saying to their friend, "It just didn't seem realistic to me."

      @carl: I probably will at some point. Books are usually better than the movies they turn into.

      @coryblank: hehe thanks!

      @xianjessen: I've got the 800, it can work as a master..though the camera does that anyways and it's not really necessary, it is nice to have.

      @KenIAm: The movies have some wicked cool effects in them.

      @mollykiely : thanks! HAHA I think Harry's bits definitely count as something!!

      @handlebar: the off-cam flash is really neat, thanks :)

      @DDofD: HAHAHA that IS funny. I generally say that about characters like "why was he so happy about being locked under the stairs?" or "why doesn't anything really bad happen to them?" I can take flying brooms and mythical beasts, but if they don't respond right, I get grouchy.

      @jay: *bow*

      @paddington: I think I need a 2nd flash now.

      @miserablespice: HA thanks, you're too kind :)

      @michaelmitchener: It just kinda happened, light, magic 8 ball, and voila.

      @hawthornecub: Thank you!

      @naddlesr: Should I print it for Patti for Christmas? hehehe

      But, what did you ask?

    13. bark 53 months ago | reply

      "Is the fucking picture in focus this time?"

    14. naddlesr 53 months ago | reply

      It is decidedly so. Print it for Patti for xmas.
