Photo Friday: Five


This one was shot in a pitch-dark room with an exposure time of 25s. I used a pen torch to illuminate only those things that I wanted the camera to see. The glowing 5s are caused by waving the torch to trace a 5 in the air.

I wouldn’t rate the picture very high on originality. I got this idea first from the recent issue of Time magazine, where they had published the picture of a scientist tracing an Omega trough air with a torchlight. Then I saw an entry by Dylon, that uses a similar technique, in this week’s photofriday noteworthy and decided to give it a shot (pun unintentional) myself.

I would rate this picture a perfect 10 on execution. And another 10 on hilarity. That expression is priceless. :)

Nice! And I'd concur with Avis: that expression is priceless :)

Oh and this (with apologies to SB - I just couldn't resist.):

Deepak,
Is that really your picture? Are you using fiberoptics cable or what? Interesting picture-- Vijay

Thanks Tetsu!

Thanks Dylan! Thanks for dropping by!

Thanks Avis! That expression is called I_hope_this_one_turns_out_fine.

It took me several clicks to get it right. I would either botch the "five" or not light my face correctly or overexpose my hand.. you get the drift :)

Sorry Geets! Had no intentions of scaring people on this blog ;-)

Hey Sajith, even I am waiting for the elusive "SB" shot now!

Thanks Anonymous!

Thanks Inky! Never knew that this picture would exercise such a hypnotic/therapeutic influence on insomniac kids :-)

Thanks Richard! Frankenstein!! You are so kind in your praises ;-)

Thanks Kaushal!

Yes Vijay - the pic is every bit mine. Nope nothing as sophisticated as fiber-optics - just a plane old torchlight being waved in the air here.

Great use of fibre optic and that too to take a good pic....
But man, don't preserve, ur kids will get frightened.
