Abstract of a TV commercial
Posted By: little laker, 06-18-2007, 10:56 PM

I took the longest exposure possible (4 seconds) pic of a TV commercial and like how it turned out

I was hand holding my camera as well (on my lap) which might have helped.
I tried some on the tripod later and they had several vertical lines throughout.
and if you can't see the pic here's the link again

bored are we Stu? I mean, mate, sitting in front of the telly nursing your camera is probably cause for some concern
Perhaps we need to get out a bit more?

That was while relaxing after a 7 hour outdoor photo shoot on a very wet day

I just wanted to play around with longer exposures while drying off

I think that daacon's term suites me best. I like taking RPS (Random Pictures of S$#@%) when I get bored

Hmmm, I'd never have thought of trying that Stu. Full points to you for creative thinking! It would make a good contest.. "guess the commercial..."

That could be a fun contest Scott, although to be perfectly honest I don't know what this commercial was. I was more interested in playing with the camera

Cool pic, Stu! I think it demonstrates one of the beautiful things about digital photography....we can explore "what if?" for free! Hang onto your curiosity.
