Reverted Exploit

A second shot from a previous location, Kuro and I felt that we could have done better. I must say, we did. The first time we shot the wide angle shot, we used Kuro's Canon. This time we used my Nikon, and I must say, Nikon > Canon. All jokes aside, we wanted to be completely parallel with the backing wall, so that the sparks would hit both walls. We also used a new cage to help reduce the chances of a shoot out. Kuro also got hit on the head this time. Now he knows how I felt when a huge chunk landed on my head. The nonsense aside, everyone was fine at the end of the day, and I got a great shot. More to come.

    Thanks. It's a bit risk, I suppose, but we definitely make sure that we don't put anyone at risk, except outselves. We won't do it if there's people there, or in the line of danger.

    Fantástica esta. Tem que girar muito rápido? Quantos segundos aberto?
  • Joey 2y

    Mauricio Leandro Seron Perdoe a minha Português. Obrigado por seu comentário! Você tem que girar muito rápido, mas enquanto você tem o obturador aberto, ele vai ficar bem. Este tiro foi feito usando o modo BULB, e se bem me lembro, cerca de um minuto ou assim.

    Fala Brother. Me arrisquei a fazer foto com fogo. Levei umas queimadas, mas acho que ficaram boas. Dá uma olhada lá. Valeu...
