post #24981 of 29551
to help get back OT I have an idea I'm wanting to do, but not sure if its the right way to go about it.

So basically I wanna do some lightpainting by having a little light up toy thing I have by spinning it on a string in a circle, but then I also want to fire a flash so the person spinning the toys can been seen as well in a nice clean shot.

I know its going to be some trial and error, but as far as my gear goes, basically set up on a tipod, play around to get the exposure time set up, and with my flash ( canon 430ex 2 ) is this where I would want to use the shutter curtain thing to fire at the last second?

I think thats what I want to do but am not quite sure if I was approaching it right.

I'm sorta confused at you want to try. I kinda get what you're trying to do, but you're only going to use one light source and one shot?

Well I only have one flash, and have not even though about the idea of double exposure.
( i suck at photoshop )

basically I want a picture of a person with a circle of light behind them ( from spinning the toy light )

That isn't hard. smile.gif

Just have a 3-10 second expose of the person spinning the light toy. Use second curtain/rear curtain flash setting on your camera to light the person up at the end of the exposure.

I missed the toy light part, but yeah Sean is right. It's going to be a trial and error in the exposure length and flash strength, but it's not difficult. Light painting can be pretty easy.

Answers to questions only come if you ask them. There's also a bunch of stickies right at the top of this forum with a TON of information.

If I had a specific question I would ask it. I came here to read and absorb about cameras/photography and since I subscribed it has been nothing but car banter. Like I said before, it is not a problem.

this is the camera section. feel free to ask here or even start a thread. there are almost 2500 pages in this thread now not to mention individual threads. you will find more useful stuff outside of this specific thread as we go OT often here. best way to learn is shoot and ask. reading and absorbing will only get you so far thumb.gif


on that note another car question about playing music in my car. i have a lot of music. bought a 128GB usb drive and was testing it in my car to realize that its not as efficient as i thought. it doesnt recognize any file structure other than folders for each album. how do yall listen to music in your car? i think i will be returning the thumb drive at work tomorrow and save up for a 160GB ipod instead as i can at least control what plays via the ipod. i just want to avoid have crazy clutter of multiple cds in my car. my last car was over run with excessive CDs everywhere because all i had was a CD player and no other inputs. now i have USB and AUX wheee.gif

Holy hell, that is impressive. Of course, being a VW, I assume repair bills during those 376k amounted to 70% of the car's initial cost.. tongue.gif


Heh, yeah, my Dad bought a Jetta TDI that had crapped its turbo and shot oil all down the exhaust pipe, and even after repairing it, it has been fairly troublesome. It drives well and he put some serious miles on it, but it's had one little thing break after another.

duct tape and zip ties and you're golden. I think since i've owned it, the biggest repair bill I had was about $1300 for a turbo, timing belt, and head gasket. The guy did crap work but it was enough to get me back on the road, and I patched up his lazy work as best as I could.

In all seriousness, my engine bay looks like a rainbow, I color-code zipties with repairs so I know what i've done.

my entire bumper is held on by zip ties, solid as a rock, but some clever engineering and its going to keep going.

Also in its 375k life, its never been in an accident. ( except for a parking lot hit and run which resulted in the zip tie bumper. )

but i'm to the point where I don't bother with fixing the little things anymore. It leaks oil, coolant, and powersteering fluid like crazy, on cold mornings a cylinder will misfire until it warms up, the headlight housing shiney parts are so coroded i have to drive with my brights on all the time at night, but it gets me from A to B. I've only had it break down on me while driving once.

I've accepted the fact that pretty much every time I get gas I add oil and PS fluid. Not going to bother with tearing the front end off to replace a steering rack, or worry about hunting down the leaking gaskets to repair the oil leaks.

I'm currently trying to save up a grand or two to add in on top of trading the car in. ( I'm still young so cash is hard to come by ) so Sometime this year I'm just going to bite the bullet of debt that I've managed to avoid so far in my life. ( dodging student loans was hard enough ) and once I have the money saved up i'm just going to hoon the crap out of the car till I trade it in. I'll get pennies for it, so I might as well have some fun with it before I do.
