Discovery

Danbo discovers film. Good thing I had already rewound it :)

Alternate shot on my Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/16410567@N02/8495546221/in/photostream

*SPOILER ALERT! If you want this shot to remain a mystery, read no further! ;)

See setup here:

Explanation of setup: Flash set up in front of lens wirelessly slaved to DSLR (so it would shine through the lens into the back of the camera.) Film camera (Nikon FM2) set to Bulb, aperture set to 1.4, cable release set to lock (so the shutter would remain open to let the flash through). I set it up this way because I wanted Danbo's face illuminated by a light source from within the camera.

And, as you might guess, it took many experimental shots:

Like both versions! Very fun.

I'm generally more impressed with a shot when I know how it was done and less impressed when its a "mystery", so I'm glad you shared all you shared. Your experiments and brain paid off! Fav

You are so clever. I am not a lover of Danbo for some reason, but this came out so great...like opening the refrigerator door. Have to fav it just for the work you put in!

Wow. . .you really put a lot of work into this!
February 22nd, 2013  
Clever! I wouldn't have thought of positioning the light like that. Came out very good. But I think DanboMint would have complemented the green in the film roll.:)

another very cool danbo shot - i like that you manage to give these expressionless danbo character quite emotive faces by the way they are arranged :)

It's all in the tilt of the head. And the light. Super story! :)
