Tear

I’m not taking or posting enough photos at the moment so I decided to jump into this week’s Photo Challenge after a few weeks off. The theme is movement. I remember some months ago finding a mini strobe light in a charity shop and for ages I’ve been meaning to take an action shot using this fast strobe and a long exposure to include a moving subject in the frame several times.

I tried a few household objects but none really came out how I had imagined them. The best of the bunch is this picture of me tearing a sheet of paper in two.

It’s a one-second exposure during which time the strobe seems to have fired at least seven times. The focus is a bit off, but ho hum. Camera was a Canon 600D with an EF 50mm f/1.8 lens.
