Gizmodo photo contest

Posted: January 25, 2010 in Photo Blog

So I decided to try my skills at the Gizmodo’s recent photo contest. The topic was motion blur…
Didn’t win, but at least got it listed on Gizmodo…

Motion Blur

Camera: Canon 5D MKII
Lens: 85mm 1.2L
ISO: 100
Aperture: f/ 1.2
Shutter Speed: 2s
Capture time: 12:15:18AM Jan 21, 2010
I shot the picture in the dark on top of a black piano to get the reflection. I had the wife light the lighter moving only the thumb capture motion blur of lighting the flint and the shooting flame and sparks. The shallow dof keeps only part of the box and lighter in focus.
