"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

An Egg, a Baseball and a Boy

Practice  stop-motion shots.  Anticipate the action.

Try to feel the timing.

Press the shutter at the right time, once, instead of fifty times.      Hopeful.


Sometimes the stop-motion looks frozen to me, perhaps too still.  Wonder if it needs a little blur to show the movement.

As you read about my shooting where you are, these are examples of how you can be on vacation and work on your skills, simultaneously.

Have fun doing it, too!

Chef at the next table- House of Japan

Jack trying to beat the ball to first base.

And jumping off the board into the pool.  Looks like a cut-and-paste figure.

    Ruth, the pool picture is a keeper. The others pale when shown with it.

  13. The ball-boy race is my favorite; though the pool shot looks like he’s standing on the water…
