Technique 3 – Exposure: stop motion
Body – Nikon D700; Lens – 50mm; EFL – 50mm; tripod; speed - 1/640 sec; aperture - f/5.6; ISO - 4000; manual mode; matrix metering; WB – AUTO; Lighting – studio – 5500K; filter – UV; RAW.
Knowing that a very high shutter speed was necessary to freeze action indoors, I placed a 70W CFL studio light just a few feet away. I started @ 1/500 sec but that didn’t completely freeze the card in motion. 1/640 sec took the trick. Also, a solid composition with the two primary focal areas (right arm and tabled cards) at ROT vectors.
Original submission description – “Beyond the Basics” / Susan and Neil Silverman:
“Challenge 3 - Before: I first tried shooting my hair falling out and my checking balance decreasing, but both of those maxxed out @ 1/60 sec. Kicking stones over that raw deal, inspiration hit in spades! This “before” required 1/640 sec to freeze not only the model’s hand but also the card.”
