"I Love Popcorn"

Stephen Shoff 2/19/2012 11:22:45 PM

I love popcorn, too. Just ate a whole bowl all by myself. But I think my hot-air popcorn popper would blow my camera right out of it. #1444347

Very cool!

Aimee C. Eisaman 2/20/2012 5:28:07 AM

No way...you have one of those popcorn popper machines??? Great idea and I love how we see your eyes peeking in waiting for those delicious kernals to mature! :~) Hope your camera didn't get all yucky. #9991744

great job sue, please tell me you aren't crazy like jeff and your camera is inside. the other side on a tripod....!!!! #9991958

Thanks guys, I wasn't sure I was going to figure something out, then wa la.
Funny Stephen I don't think the air popper would be the best thing on a camera. hmmm but then it might we an interest image:)
Aimee, I got this machine as a Christmas gift for a joke one year because next to a camera, popcorn is my next best passion:)) I just can't get enough of it! Camera is fine. Rita, I am a tad crazy but not sure I would put my camera in the dishwasher, hahaha. I used my wide angle lense so I could get close but not close enough that the popcorn could reach it, I use oil spray so I wasn't to worried about the hot oils. The best part about this assignment was the snack during and after. #9992255

You did an awesome job! Yes the popcorn looks very tasty!!! #9993299

Sue -- So you DID put your camera in the machine! Brave woman. I like your idea and I have got to say that I love popcorn, too. My first job was in an artsy foreign movie theatre and I had way too much popcorn those two years! And my best friend worked in a doughnut shop and we "shared" with each other. In those days, it didn't hurt either of us or the rest of our friends either. #9994395

Really brave and creative of you SUE! excellent entry for Dale's challenge. Afraid my creativeness (or total lack thereof) has not kicked in yet. #9994479

Sue C. Cole 2/21/2012 11:29:40 AM

Thanks B, Debbie and Joan this was a fun assignment. I had my family laughing all night at me doing this. #9994488

Lov'n this!! #9994505

Sue C. Cole 2/21/2012 1:57:08 PM

Thanks Carla #9994722

Love it Sue. You nailed the challenge perfectly and had a treat to boot. Can't beat that with a stick.

But this is a critique club so since no one has critiqued, will give it a shot. Would suggest you ellimate the color cast. It's easiest to open the image in a raw editor and change the temp. Would also suggest reducing the noise a bit and opening the shadows some to reveal the shininess of the popper. #9995264

Debbra Bailey 2/22/2012 5:29:50 AM

Now I want popcorn! And it is only 8:30 in the morning! But I agree with you - popcorn rocks!!

Great idea and shot! #9995749

Peter W. Marks 2/22/2012 7:48:27 AM

And this is different too. You are a creative bunch. #9995982

Sue C. Cole 2/22/2012 7:59:28 AM

thanks Guys and Debbra, I eat it for breakfast sometimes:) #9996015

Teresa H. Hunt 2/22/2012 12:30:52 PM

First thing I thought when I saw this was of my son Devin and how excited he'd get over popcorn. I can almost see his silly excited face with his tongue hanging out. Popcorn was his FAVORITE food. After making it he'd hold the salt shaker upside down until I made him stop. I could never eat his popcorn because it tasted like salt.

Great image! Thanks for the memory :) #9996351

Sue C. Cole 2/22/2012 2:46:12 PM

Teresa, so glad you shared your memory with me it makes my image that much more important to me. One day I'm sure my grand daughter (Kyrstin) will go down memory lane with this image as well. she is the only one in my family that get's exited when the popcorn pops and we share in the fun. I can imagine how excited Devin would get when I see Kyrstin's eyes. Blessings too you! #9996515
