Remember focal plane shutters on film cameras where you could get dramatically different flash/available light balanced  pictures, depending on whether or not the "x" (electronic flash setting) was set to "at first curtain", or "at second curtain"?

I took a photo of a basketball player, years ago, jumping to put the ball in the basket, with a strong flash, and the combination of blurred available light and secondary flash  at about a 15th of a second, and the photo looked like his white front teeth, trailing the flash image,  were about 12 feet long, in an arc.

I bet some interesting photos could be made of GB member, Brother Stephen Lett, in action.

I used to rely on GB cards, but found that some were typical, and some were anti-typical, and I could never make any sense of the overlapping photos.

For those in Rio Linda, that is ultra-dry Gobi Desert humor.

and keep my camera on "continuous" shooting bursts 5 pictures to the second. ...Now that "film" is free, with digital cameras when I shoot a wedding sometimes I take two or three thousand pictures for that very reason. 

 

Probably by selecting just the right one, you could suggest of any wedding that they will be divorced in two weeks.

I'm guessing that in the first picture Angela Merkel is saying: "Did you hear the one about the Japanese man who  . . . . ?"

That could explain the second picture.

I have no doubt that is the real story.

I found this interesting picture ... taken just 15 seconds apart, of Chelsea Clinton, with different lighting, camera angles, and background .... so you can see the same subject can look different depending on when it was photographed.

.....

..... wait for it .......

 

.... "refreshing" the photos now .....

Let's say you want a cover for an International magazine, that graphically depicts the fact that the Russian Federation is now in the business of BANNING BIBLES !

FIRST:   hire some very creative photographers with the latest expensive equipment .. in this case a $50,000 medium format digital camera and articulated support, and a pot load of lighting equipment, and a studio ... and oh yeas... write a check for about $20,000.

SECOND: Get a pickup truck and go down to your local big game taxidermist and rent a stuffed Russian bear.

THIRD: build some supports under the stuffed bear, and figure out angles and lighting  ... and get a copy of the specific Bible that the Russkies are banning ... in this case ... the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures.

FOURTH: Make claw marks on the NWT, using great skill and creativity.

FIFTH: Make sure the photo is PERFECTLY lit, with a PERFECT background, and PERFECT angle.  You are probably in your second day of taking the ONE picture you want.

SIXTH: compose and crop the picture so that the magazine staff can add commentary, and of course their "mast", or name of the magazine.

SEVENTH: Deliver the photo by hand to the editor of the magazine, get your check COD, and go to THEIR bank and cash it. THIS is the most important part!!

Graphically .... it looks something like this .......
